The Canada Media Fund (CMF) has revealed a total contribution of more than C$7.6 million ($5.8 million) for 14 projects that applied for production funding through its Aboriginal Program.
There were ten documentaries, three children’s and youth programs and one drama series chosen. The projects come from Alberta, British Colombia, Manitoba, Nunavut, Ontario and Québec. Applications for funding were evaluated by a jury comprising individuals from Indigenous communities.
Including this round of funding, the CMF has invested more than C$60.2 million ($46.3 million) in 140 Canadian Aboriginal productions through the program since 2010.
