The jury provides an external perspective on the creative elements of the project and assesses the experience of the production and creative teams on their capacity to deliver the projects submitted for funding through the CMF Web Series Pilot Program.

In the coming weeks, the CMF will announce the projects that will receive funding support through this program.
