High demand for the Convergent Digital Media Incentive Program and the Regional French Production Incentive
Toronto, June 21, 2013—The CMF announced today that the Convergent Digital Media Incentive (CDMI) for French language projects and the Regional French Production Incentive are now closed due to a high number of eligible applications received.
Convergent Digital Media Incentive for French language projects
The CMF will no longer be accepting applications from applicants who wish to receive funds for their French language digital media component from this incentive. In April 2013, the CMF announced that the Convergent Digital Media Incentive for English language projects was closed due to receiving a high number of applications.
The Convergent Digital Media Incentive is designed to encourage the production of value-added digital media components that are related to CMF-funded television productions in order to provide the Canadian public with the opportunity to access their favourite content on different platforms for a truly convergent experience.
Regional French Production Incentive
The CMF will no longer be accepting applications from applicants who wish to receive funds for their Regional French language projects from this incentive.
The incentive supports the growth of French production by Quebec producers who are located outside Montreal.
