Francophone Minority Program

Due to a high demand for the Francophone Minority Program: Development, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications for this program.

The Francophone Minority Program supports productions which reflect the realities of living in French-language communities outside of Quebec. Funding under this Program is open to Canadian companies located outside of Quebec who produce primarily in French.

As part of the CMF’s Convergent Stream, projects funded must include content to be developed and produced for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.

For selective deadlines only, applicants will be permitted to apply via Dialogue generally 10 days in advance of the Program’s Closing Date.
