MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC’s Access to Markets & Festivals

Posted on June 2, 2020

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.

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

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

Complete applications will be reviewed by MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC for eligibility and awards will be based on the strength of the application and the demand on program funding. Successful applications will receive notification within approximately twenty-one (21) business days following the receipt of complete documentation at which time they will receive the contribution agreement for signature.  

Annual MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC contributions may not exceed $3,000 per individual, and $6,000 per production company.

Given the low uptake for applications to the Professional Development Fund in 2019/20 and the oversubscription to Access to Markets and Access to Festivals resources have been realigned to better serve the demand and as a result this program has been discontinued at this time.
