Feature Film & Television Production Grant

By mmuise

The Feature Film & Television Production Grant provides financial support to eligible applicants for feature film and television productions that have secured a relevant market trigger or distribution agreement of fair market value. There are two streams within this grant: Saskatchewan Stream and Service Production Stream.
This grant invests in television and feature film projects with commercial intent that shoot in Saskatchewan and/or employ Saskatchewan- based crew during production and post-production.

Comments on Funding:

Funding takes the form of grants of:
- up to 30% of all eligible Saskatchewan expenditures up to a maximum of $5,000,000 through the Saskatchewan Stream;
- 25% of all eligible Saskatchewan expenditures up to a maximum of $5,000,000 through the Service Production Stream.

For both streams, applicants might be eligible for the following bonuses (to a commitment not exceeding a maximum of 40% of eligible Saskatchewan expenditures for Saskatchewan Stream, or maximum of 35% for Service Production Stream):
- 10% frequent filming bonus (where applicants complete 3 or more eligible productions per year in Saskatchewan);
- 5% rural bonus (where majority production takes place a minimum 50km outside Regina or Saskatoon);
- 5% Saskatchewan post-production bonus (where majority post-production is taking place in Saskatchewan). This bonus applies to all of the eligible expenses, not just the eligible post-production expenses.
