Creative Evaluation Grid


Telefilm supports openness, fairness and consistency at all levels of operation. In this same spirit, we have developed several grids to help us evaluate coproduction projects. These grids are not an integral part of the coproduction guidelines, but serve as a tool to assess the creative and technical aspects of projects being considered.

A project must first and foremost meet the required minimum creative positions, as they are defined in Telefilm’s Coproduction guidelines. If a project doesn’t meet this minimum, it is then evaluated using the grids, which include a bonus-point system. Particularly complex or atypical projects can be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Some other useful tools and links regarding the coproduction process can also be found in this section.

We update these documents regularly. Please ensure that you submit your application using only the most recent version of each document (below).
