International Marketing and Festival Participation Program

The Canada Feature Film Fund’s International Marketing and Festival Participation Program is available to Canadian companies specializing in film production, distribution and sales, and aims to support the marketing and promotion of Canadian content and talent abroad. This Program was previously known as the International Festival Participation Pilot Program.

The Program’s objectives are in line with Telefilm Canada’s strategic priorities of promoting talent and increasing access to Canadian content. It supports the international marketing and promotional strategies of Canadian productions officially selected at recognized international festivals.

New in 2013-2014: although the primary focus of support of this Program will continue to be feature-length films, financial assistance through the Program can also now be awarded to short films.
