The Canadian Film Centre announces the launch of the new
TELUS Innovation Fund.
Created and administered by the Canadian Film Centre,
the TELUS Innovation Fund will provide funds for the production of innovative film,
television, and new media content projects. This fund was designed to assist projects that
place Canadian ideas, talent, and media at the forefront of the future of entertainment.
The TELUS Innovation Fund invests in new forms of high-quality, original Canadian content
that explore new ways of approaching entertainment and storytelling. The fund supports projects
that contribute to a body of innovative Canadian work and successfully employ pioneering strategies
in breaking new ground to reach general public audiences.
The TELUS Innovation Fund will support three projects a year to a maximum of $100,000 per project.
All Canadian Controlled Private companies (CCPC) that own and originate
the majority of copyright in a film, television or digital interactive
media project are eligible to apply. Companies are invited to submit an Expression of Interest(EOI) that outlines
the project for which they are seeking funding by Monday, February 27, 2006. Applications will be adjudicated by a
cross Canada jury and a select number will be invited to submit a full application. For further information on the
TELUS Innovation Fund guidelines, application submission deadlines or to complete the Expression of Interest form
