Through the Convergent Stream, the CMF supports the creation of content in four underrepresented genres: drama, documentary, children’s & youth, and variety & performing arts.
The Experimental Stream encourages the development of interactive digital media content and software applications that are innovative and leading-edge. Projects must be connected to the Canadian cultural sector.
