The Canada Media Fund has sent out a reminder that October 14, 2011 is the first closing date for the 2011-2012 English Production Incentive. As the guidelines (PDF) for the English Production Incentive state:
Applications to this program will be accepted until October 14, 2011, or until funds for the province or territory’s allocation are depleted, whichever comes first. If any portion of a province/territory’s allocation has not been committed by October 14. For example, if the CMF has not received complete, eligible application(s) with regard to the province or territory’s allocation by this date, the uncommitted portion will be made available to other projects eligible for the English Production Incentive in this fiscal year. That said, in no case will the CMF’s contribution to a project from the English Production Incentive exceed 10% of a Television Component’s Eligible Costs or $1 million, whichever is less.
For details on money left available in each province or territory, please contact your local CMF Program Administrator – Telefilm Canada office.
