Canada-Northern Ireland Co-Development Incentive.
The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Northern Ireland Screen (NIS) have announced the reopening of their funding incentive for the development of screen-based projects between Canadian and Northern Ireland producers.

Now in its third consecutive year, the Canada-Northern Ireland Co-Development Incentive for Audiovisual Projects funds the co-development of television projects in the drama, documentary, animation or education genres, or digital media content made for other platforms, including web series, video games, transmedia projects, and virtual or augmented reality.

The amount available for this year of the Incentive will be CAD$200,000 (€131,500) with half the funds contributed by each funding organisation. The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the Incentive will be CAD$50,000 (€33,000).

Since its inception, eight projects received a total investment of nearly $400,000 (€263,000) through this incentive.

Producers interested in applying to receive funding can apply until the August 14th, 2020 deadline.
