NWT Producers Incentive Pilot Program (PIPP)

By mmuise

The NWT Producers Incentive Pilot Program (PIPP) supports projects owned by NWT producers at their pre-development and development stages. Increasing the quality of creative and pitch materials increases the likelihood NWT producers will be able to secure production and finishing funds from broadcasters and financiers.
