The Canada Media Fund (CMF) has international Incentive agreements for the co-development and/or co-production of Interactive Digital Media projects. As consumers have growing access to content from all corners of the world, interactive digital media companies can benefit greatly from working together on the international front.

The CMF Recently Announced Incentives Agreements with Northern Ireland & Germany

Historically the deadlines to apply for co-development and/or co-production International Incentives have been mostly in the fall. We want to provide you with enough time to meet with potential partners and explore possible projects.

Interactive Ontario, with the support of Ontario Creates, Canada Media Fund and the Bell Fund, is organizing an opportunity for one-on-one meetings with potential international partners. 

For those who have funding questions, Danielle Hebert and Kim Gibson from Ontario Creates, and Shelley Coultish from Canada Media Fund will be available on the B2B2GO platform for meetings regarding leveraging their programs to help finance Co-Production/Co-Development projects. In addition to the Canadian funders, Esther Rothstegge, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB), will also be on hand to answer questions.

Important CMF Co-Production Resources:

Last year’s documents are included to provide guidance, until new agreements are finalized by the CMF. Please note that there is no guarantee that all of them will be reconducted and if so, if they will be under the same terms. Also note that France has not had an International Incentive agreement with the CMF yet. They are however interested in encouraging Canada-France co-development and co-production IDM projects.
