Luxembourg-Canada co-development and co-production incentive now accepting applications

The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Film Fund Luxembourg (FFL), the body responsible for film funding and media business development in Luxembourg, announced today the relaunch, for the second year in a row, of the Canada-Luxembourg Codevelopment and Coproduction Incentive for Audiovisual Projects.

To be eligible, projects must be submitted by producers meeting the criteria of both organizations. Projects funded at the development stage must be drama or animation series, feature-length animation or digital media projects. The Incentive also funds eligible digital media projects—specifically in the areas of virtual or augmented reality, transmedia or enabling technologies—at the production stage.

The annual combined budget of the Incentive is CAD$900,000 (approximately €600,000), with each party contributing half, for a total investment over a two-year period of CAD$1,800,000 (about €1,200,000).

The total maximum combined contribution is CAD$100,000 (about €65,000) for each television or digital project funded at the development stage and CAD$500,000 (about €320,000) for each digital media project in production. The contribution of each funding organisation to selected projects will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
