This incentive is the result of a partnership between both organizations to encourage the codevelopment of audiovisual content. The budget for the incentive is CAD$200,000. Both organisations contributed an equal share in the total funding of the incentive.

To be considered for funding through the Incentive, projects must comply with both parties’ general funding criteria, with the CMF determining eligibility for the Canadian portion of a project and BAI determining eligibility for the Irish portion of the project. Projects will be evaluated and chosen by a committee comprised of representatives from each of the CMF and BAI through a selective process.

The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the Incentive will be CAD$50,000. The deadline to submit an application for funding under this program is September 28, 2016. All projects will be evaluated at the same time following the submission deadline. 

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 by clicking here. Profiles will be accessible to all, including potential partners from other countries.
