Toronto, June 30, 2016 - The Canada Media Fund (CMF) announced today the program guidelines for the International Codevelopment Incentive between the CMF and Spcine (São Paulo, Brazil). Click here to access the guidelines.

This incentive is the result of a renewed partnership, now in its second year, between both organizations to encourage the codevelopment of audiovisual content. The budget for the incentive is CAD$172,000, with the CMF contributing CAD$100,000 and Spcine CAD$72,000.

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 Spcine determining eligibility for the Brazilian portion of the project. Projects will be evaluated and chosen by a committee comprised of representatives from the CMF and Spcine through a selective process.

The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the Incentive will be CAD$50,000 if the project is a television component, or CAD$25,000 if the project is a digital media component. The deadline to submit an application for funding under this program is September 6, 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.
