Thirteen Projects Receive CMF Funding

Canada Media FundThe Canada Media Fund announced today that it contributed more than $3.8 million dollars in 13 projects that applied to the Francophone Minority Program in the first round. Since its inception in 2010, the CMF has supported a total of 71 projects by providing more than $23 million to francophone minority productions.

The Francophone Minority Program is designed to encourage the creation of projects that reflect the realities experienced by French-language communities living outside the province of Quebec.

Of the 13 supported projects, three are from British Columbia, two are from Manitoba, three are from New Brunswick, and five are from Ontario (two of which are from Toronto). Two projects are Children and Youth, eight projects are Documentaries, and three are of the Variety and Performing Arts genre.
