Funded Projects

Funded Projects Database

The Canada Media Fund wants to keep applicants informed of funding decisions and results throughout the year. The database below contains projects that have been announced during the current fiscal year and all funded projects from prior years. New results will be added as they are published.
There are two types of announcements: Funding Decisions and Funding Results.


Requesting data from the Canada Media Fund (CMF)

The Canada Media Fund may provide additional information on funded projects upon request. Please read the data request guidelines at this link.

 

Funding Decisions

Funding Decisions indicate the selection of projects which have qualified for the CMF support but have yet to finalize all contracts. Only programs using a selective, competitive process to allocate funding are subject to a funding decision. These selective programs are: Experimental Stream, Aboriginal, English POV, Francophone Minority, and Diverse Languages.

A Funding Decision is posted on our website when decisions become available. Please note that there is one decision per application closing date. The decisions and funding commitments posted on the website are preliminary, as all requests must undergo a contracting process. Funding is not final until contracts are signed.

Funding Results

Funding results indicate approved and contracted applications for all convergent and experimental stream programs. The funding results are published on a quarterly basis.

Evaluation Jury

We rely on industry experts to contribute to the evaluation of leading-edge Canadian interactive productions.

Jury Members

Information in the funded projects database is correct as of the date of posting. The online database is updated at different times throughout the year, but not currently updated on a regular basis to reflect changes that may occur after posting, including changes in the applicant name or ownership of the project. If a project is subsequently withdrawn or refused funding, it will still appear on this page for informational purposes.

Synopsis

Nearly two years have passed since the first season. Frédérique is still down and out as she tries to make a living in the world of rap. The path is long and full of uncertainty. However, she finds hope in her small successes, such as being featured in a song with a fashionable artist. While this is a great boost for her self-esteem, her bank account is still in the red. Self-confidence does not pay the rent or her daily needs as a single mother. Was she right to latch on? She’s now in her mid-thirties; has the ship sailed? Does she think that she’s still a teen? Talent is not enough to make a name for yourself in the industry. It’s all about playing the game—having a stage persona, looking sensational, staying up late and partying with the others. A lifestyle that burns the candle at all ends.

Synopsis

Young Bébéatrice is a little girl surrounded by adults. No matter the situation, time or subject matter, she is a receptive girl who is not ashamed to speak up. She is known as the princess in her family home (or is that her kingdom?). She has absolute rule over the home; everyone must watch out, especially her dad. Bébéatrice doesn’t hold her tongue; she is critical of everything and is not open to debate. However, she can be loving, kind and sweet—but not all the time. ;-) Above all, Bébéatrice often has the last word when talking to Papa Guy who stands open-mouthed when faced with her comebacks. But Bébéatrice is not alone: Mamanie, Granny Suzanne and her older brother, Théo, also live in this young girl’s court.

Synopsis

The first season of Faux départs (False starts) presented Ugo and Carla, two characters who had a carefree life. In the second season, however, Ugo and Carla have grown up a bit. Issues surrounding drinking are discussed, as are issues about reinventing yourself as you get older. Is there such a thing as a clean slate? Or is it possible to at least stop thinking about the past so much? Can you heal from ravaging heartbreak or depression, or are you doomed to pretend that all is well until death? Carla and Ugo are obligated to answer this crucial question—or perhaps they’ll run from the question altogether.

Synopsis

First Person is a digital anthology series consisting of 8 short films that are 6-8 minutes in length. Season two will be a continuation and expansion of the themes and insight explored in the successful first season.

The shared real-life experiences, unique perspectives, and original Canadian voice found in these essays is what makes them compelling as a digital series. First Person aims to be the “Heritage Minute” of every-day Canadians. It connects, educates, and demonstrates the commonalities amongst us while celebrating diversity. Personal stories adapted into creatively well-told narratives that are entertaining, meaningful, and emotionally impactful.

Synopsis

Created by 2018 Playback’s 5-to-Watch Winnifred Jong with producing partner Trinni Franke, TOKENS is a short form digital series about the actors of an On-Call Casting Agency that specializes in diversity. Whoever is on call is randomly sent out to sets desperate to hit their diversity quotas, with actors often cast in a role they least expect. Since the launch at TIFF Bell Lightbox hosted by Toronto Star TV Critic, Tony Wong, TOKENS has garnered half a million views and has been screened and awarded at several top-tier web festivals internationally. Created by an all-female key creative team, TOKENS web series will expand into a second season, growing the worlds of the lead characters Sammie Pang and On Call Casting dispatcher Betty.   Building upon the simple "Uber for Actors" premise of the first season, the new season will keep the riotous laughs while also delivering a poignant story arc delving into themes of identity and female empowerment.  With the perfect mix of heart and humour, we aim to show the world there are more to these characters than meets the eye.
