Jury members have complementary skill sets including academic research, entrepreneurship, independent production (digital media, film, and television), and marketing. The jury provides an external perspective on innovation and assesses the experience of the production and creative teams with regards to their capacity to deliver the projects submitted for CMF funding.

The Experimental Stream encourages the development of innovative, interactive digital media content such as console and casual games, interactive web series and apps, as well as enabling technologies.

In early July, the CMF will announce the projects that will receive production support from the CMF’s Experimental Stream.
