CMF Awards Funding for Canada-Ireland Projects


TORONTO/DUBLIN: The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Broadcast Authority of Ireland (BAI) have invested C$170,000 ($126,242) to support the co-development of audiovisual content under the Canada-Ireland Co-development Incentive for Audio-Visual Projects.

Projects that will receive funding under the initiative are The Drownings, The Edge, The Week I Ruined My Life and Viking Empires. The selected projects are intended for broadcast by eligible Canadian and Irish broadcasters and involve at least one Canadian producer and one Irish producer.

The incentive seeks to fund TV projects and digital media extensions of those projects that fulfill both the guidelines of the CMF and the objectives and themes of BAI’s Sound and Vision Scheme. Projects were evaluated and chosen by a selection committee composed of representatives from both funding organizations.
