Submit your FINAL REPORT

Program Description:

The former Access to Markets and Access to Festivals Programs funded by MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC and previously administered by On Screen Manitoba will now be both funded and administered by MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC and are rebranded under a single streamlined program called MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC’s Access to Markets & Festivals.

MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC’s ACCESS TO MARKETS & FESTIVALS is an industry-driven fund that supports the market development activities of Manitoba production companies, independent producers, distributors, directors and writers at national and international markets and festivals. Production companies are also eligible to apply for up to two (2) in person business trips, trade missions, red carpet screenings, and/or award shows, where the primary activity of the producer will be focused around business meetings and market expansion. MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC reserves the right to consider additional in person marketing activities on a case-by-case basis. In response to current travel restrictions surrounding COVID-19, virtual markets and festival opportunities will be considered for applications received before March 31, 2021.

With these changes a number of enhancements have been made to better serve producers.

Submissions for the program will open on June 1st, 2020 and are sent directly to MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC via the jotform application form and will be accepted up to March 31, 2021 or until funds are exhausted.

Please find below a summary of guideline changes to the 2020/21 program compared to the Access programs in the 2019/20 fiscal year:
