Grants to Canada independent production companies and independent producers for original online scripted fiction and non-fiction digital video series. Funding is intended to support the production of scripted fiction (comedy, drama, and children’s and youth programming, excluding animated series) and scripted non-fiction (i.e. documentary and lifestyle/factual programming). Only series will be supported, with a maximum length of 15 minutes per episode and a minimum of 6 episodes.
To qualify as a short-form digital series, the programming cannot be broadcast before 12 months after its initial launch on a digital platform. It is expected that the number of episodes be appropriate for the genre, budget, distribution platform and the level of funding requested. Content should have the potential for commercial success, and while there is no requirement to do so, the content may also act as a talent incubator for Canadian-licensed broadcaster channels or digital platforms.
Applicants are required to submit the Discoverability Plan with the application, and they will be evaluated together. Eligible costs include standard digital video production costs, but not the costs of implementing the Discoverability Plan. .
