CMF Continues South Africa Co-Development Pact


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) has renewed its co-development partnership with the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), part of South Africa’s Department of Arts and Culture.

Under the extended agreement, the two organizations will establish a dedicated incentive over three years for the co-development of TV projects between Canadian and South African producers. To qualify, projects must be television programs in the genres of drama, documentary or children and youth.

The total amount of funding available through the incentive is approximately CAD 120,000 or ZAR 1,200,000 ($91,800), with CMF and NFVF each contributing half. The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the incentive is CAD $40,000 or ZAR 200,000 ($30,600).
