Indigenous Program

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

The Indigenous Program which forms part of the CMF’s Convergent Stream supports the growth of Indigenous production. The CMF recognizes the unique circumstances of the Indigenous production community.

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