Cinéma: Programme d’aide à la production cinématographique (Film: Film Production Assistance Program)

By mmuise

This grant supports the production of French language Canadian feature films and the multiplatform operations of feature films and fosters interactive marketing strategies. The program also intends to permit creative and production teams to produce a final product as close to their initial creative vision as possible and promote return on investment to increase its scope of assistance to producers and distributors.

Comments on Funding:

The Quebecor Fund’s contribution to eligible projects is refundable financial assistance divided into two elements:
1. A supplement to the guaranteed minimum. The Quebecor Fund’s contribution for each eligible project can reach a maximum of $200,000, as a supplement to the distributor’s guaranteed minimum. This contribution does not exceed 10% of the production budget.
2. A supplement to marketing costs. An additional contribution of up to $40,000 will be paid for an interactive marketing strategy, subject to the distributor’s contribution of an equal amount. All media placement amounts must be spent exclusively on Canadian media.
