The CMF’s Sector Development Support is, project-based funding to support industry initiatives which demonstrate the potential to positively impact Canada’s audiovisual ecosystem by addressing industry gaps in distinct and identified areas, including Canada’s regions and Underrepresented Communities. Successful projects should lead to tangible benefits for multiple members of the screen-based sector and cannot primarily benefit any one creator or company.
