Film and TV Funding

RSG assesses new and emerging trends in the film, Television, digital media and video game industries with respect to Canadian grants, funds, incentives and other initiatives to access tax credits and funding programs in the most effective manner possible.

RSG assesses which company activities might qualify for funding, drafts and completes high quality funding requests and applications with supporting documents. RSG will shape assignments to appeal to the appropriate funding agencies. RSG will also liaise with funding agencies to determine how the funding request will find success.

Convergence Services 

RSG assists Film and TV companies with their digital marketing strategies. RSG also has strategic partnerships with some of the most distinguished and successful digital media and video game companies across Canada (including Invoke Media, Zeroes to Heroes, Slant Six Games and Ayogo Games). We help bridge the gap between Film and TV producers and digital media companies to add digital and gaming components to film and TV projects, necessary to access much funding.

Canada Media Fund (CMF), Convergent Stream 

The CMF Convergent Stream funds projects which distribute content on at least two platforms: film and television and digital media. The CMF is administered by Telefilm (Canada). Revenue Services Group understands and works closely with Telefilm (Canada) to process and review your funding application.

1. Performance Envelope Program, Broadcaster triggered fund allocated to Canadian broadcasters, who distribute the funds to projects at their discretion. Envelope allocations are calculated using four weighted factors: audience success, historic access, above-threshold licensing, and regional licensing. Funds are paid directly to the producer, not the broadcaster (except for broadcaster in house productions).

2. Development Program, Broadcaster triggered for English language projects and selective for French language projects aimed to support projects at the development state.

3. English Production Incentive, first-come first-serve fund to support the growth or production where English production volumes have declined more than 20% below their five- year historical average (defined annually by CMF)

4. English POV Program, selective fund aimed to support the growth of English POV documentaries.

5. Aboriginal Program, selective fund to support the growth of Aboriginal production with a per project cap of $400,000.

6. Diverse Languages Program, fund to support the creation of projects that reflect the variety of languages that are spoken in Canada.
