Funding Secured by Canada-Ireland Projects


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) have revealed an investment of more than C$78,000 ($59,000) under the Canada-Ireland Co-Development Incentive for Audio-Visual Projects.

Two Canadian producers will collaborate with a pair of Irish production companies on the development of two projects. Canada’s Grandboy and Ireland’s Loosehorse are working on From Ireland to the Arctic, while Canada’s Rezolution Pictures and Ireland’s Subotica are teaming up for Lullaby.

These projects are meant to air on eligible Canadian and Irish broadcasters. They were chosen by a committee of representatives from both funding organizations. Guidelines for the fourth edition of the program are expected to be announced in mid-April 2019 for a June 2019 deadline.
