CMF invests over $4.5M in 55 production companies through Slate Development Pilot Program

Toronto, June 20, 2024 – The Canada Media Fund (CMF) today announced an investment of $4,575,000 in 55 production companies through the fiscal 2023-2024 edition of our Slate Development Pilot Program. This sum includes additional funds allocated to the program thanks to the $40M Government of Canada investment for French-language content and underrepresented creators.  

The Slate Development Pilot Program offers more flexibility to prodcos and allows them to choose and fund their development projects without an attached Canadian broadcaster or other triggering entity. Eligibility to this program is based on attaining a threshold of reported gross sales and CMF-funded production and development activities. 

Of the 55 funding recipients, 33 will be developing projects in English, and 22 in French. Nine will be developing Children & Youth (C&Y) projects, 18 will be working on dramas, and 28 on documentaries.
