Inside Out LGBT Film Festival is a Designated Partner of Telefilm’s Talent to Watch (formerly the Micro-Budget Program), and will be able to recommend projects for funding of up to $125,000 through Telefilm’s Selective Stream.
The recommended projects must be fictional or documentary audiovisual projects produced in English, French or an Indigenous language that are either:
|▪||feature length films of 75 minutes or more; or|
|▪||any other type of narrative-based audiovisual content made in a format specifically designed for online audiences. These types of projects can be comprised of one or more segments which, in total, must be more than 10 minutes in length.|
The key members of all recommended projects must be emerging talent, i.e. they must have previously produced, directed and/or written at least one short film but cannot have previously held the same key position on a feature length film. Note that producers who have previously produced one feature film that has received funding under this Program will also be considered as emerging talent. Furthermore, the key members must be Canadian citizens, within the definition of the Citizenship Act, or permanent residents within the definition of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
