Telefilm Canada  and the Rogers Group of Funds  are pleased to announce the extension of their partnership and the opening of the 2014-2015 Theatrical Documentary Program , once again joining forces to underwrite the Program with the intent to co-finance films that can meet key audience-building objectives. Successful projects will be identified as having strong potential for box office earnings, international awards, and prominent festival selections.
Canadian documentaries capture a diverse and unique perspective on social, economic and political issues. They tell stories that are specific and personal yet universally relevant. By renewing this public-private partnership, Telefilm and Rogers Group of Funds aim to encourage the success and ensure the future of Canadian, non-fiction story-telling.
Applications may be submitted as of yesterday, September 2nd, 2014. The program deadline is September 30th, 2014 for both French and English-language projects. Please consult the Guidelines applicable as of September 2, 2014 for the Theatrical Documentary Program  PDF online for further details
