Nineteen Projects Receive CMF Funding Supporting Diversity Of Voices

Canada Media FundThe Canada Media Fund (CMF) announced today a contribution of more than $7.8M to 19 eligible projects that applied either to the Francophone Minority Program or the Anglophone Minority Incentive.  As the CMF enters its fourth year, it continues to support diversity of voices from a regional, language and point of view perspective by offering financial support to official-language minorities across the country. 

Francophone Minority Program – A total of 13 projects that applied to the Francophone Minority Program received more than $4.8M in the first round of funding.  Since its inception in 2010, the CMF has supported a total of 102 francophone minority projects by providing more than $34.5M. 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 convergent projects, four of which have a digital media component, two are from Manitoba, six are from New Brunswick, and five are from Ontario. Three projects are Children’s & Youth, seven projects are Documentaries, and three are of the Variety and Performing Arts genre. A second round of evaluation will take place in the fall for the Francophone Minority Program with a September 24th deadline.
