How to Finance Your Film: Where and Who to Pitch It to?

We bring to local filmmakers two representatives from Canada Media Fund and Telefilm Canada to help you navigate these federal funding agencies. You are hoping to make a short film or feature length? Join us for an intimate workshop session.

Her 22 years of experience at Telefilm in all sectors (feature film, TV, digital media), and prior experience in production since the mid-80s gives her a depth of knowledge on finance and production at all budget levels. She is a keen and approachable behind-the-scenes supporter of Canadian storytellers telling their stories for Canada and the world.
