Access to Markets & Festivals program changes
Posted on March 14, 2023
After an unprecedented demand in the 2022-23 fiscal year, Manitoba Film & Music’s Access to Markets & Festivals program is now closed for new applications.
Beginning April 1, 2023, the former Access to Markets & Festivals program, funded and administered by Manitoba Film & Music, will now be administered by On Screen Manitoba and is rebranded under the following three support programs:
Access to Markets
An industry-driven fund that supports the market development activities of Manitoba producers, production companies, independent distributors and writers at national and international markets.
Access to Festivals
An industry-driven fund that supports a portion of the travel costs for independent Manitoba writers, directors, producers and distributors whose feature length productions (short films may be considered on a case-by-case basis) have been selected to screen at national and international festivals.
Professional Development Fund
An industry-driven program designed to support the professional development of independent Manitoban writers, directors, production company full-time staff, and creative service professionals with at least two years of experience in the screen-based industry.
These funds will continue to provide support for Manitoba producers, writers, directors and/or distributors to attend industry-recognized film and television industry markets and film festivals, professional development opportunities and other related approved events.
Complete program guidelines to be available Friday, March 17, on the On Screen Manitoba website with application submissions to open April 1, 2023.
