Canada-Denmark Digital Co-Development Initiative Renewed


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Danish Film Institute (DFI) have re-upped their incentive for the co-development of digital media projects between Canadian and Danish producers.

The Canada-Denmark Co-Development Incentive for Digital Media Projects budget is set at C$300,000 ($232,000), with each partner investing half of the total amount. The incentive will support the co-development of new digital content that is innovative, explores different ways of telling stories, experiments with new formats and platforms, and finds fresh ways to engage audiences.

The project must involve at least one Danish producer eligible under the DFI’s criteria and one Canadian producer eligible under the CMF’s criteria. The deadline to apply is December 12, 2018. Recipients will be announced in February 2019.
