Co-production funding for audiovisual project

The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Northern Ireland Screen are reopening their co-production funding incentive for the development of screen-based projects between Canadian and Northern Ireland producers.

Now in its third consecutive year, the Canada-Northern Ireland Co-development Incentive for Audiovisual Projects funds the co-development of television projects in the drama, documentary, animation or education genres, or digital media content made for other platforms, including web series, video games, transmedia projects, and virtual or augmented reality.

The amount available for this year of the Incentive will be approximately £114,000 with half the funds contributed by each funding organisation. The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the Incentive will be approximately £29,000.

Since its inception, eight projects received a total investment of nearly £228,000 through this incentive. Producers interested in applying to receive funding can apply until the Friday 14 August 2020.

Producers interested in finding an international partner as part of this development incentive are invited to post a profile of their company on the CMF's website. Profiles will be accessible to all, including potential partners from other countries.
