Be a part of Canada’s next success

Film is an integral part of Canada’s cultural fabric. Our films have been celebrated the world over, winning countless awards at festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, and even the Oscars. Through all those proud moments, Telefilm Canada has been there to support our filmmakers. But making a film in Canada is anything but easy - even for our country’s most established talent. Instead of focusing on creating amazing films, Canada’s film industry has been forced to spend more and more time seeking out alternative sources of financing. That’s why Telefilm Canada established the Talent Fund – an initiative to ensure that our country’s filmmakers can continue to make award-winning content to share on platforms around the world without worrying about where funding will come from.

How will your donation help? A donation to the Talent Fund goes directly to help finance the production, distribution, and marketing of Canadian feature films. Without the support of private donors like you, the next generation of filmmakers may not be able to tell our stories. Make arts and culture one of your philanthropic priorities and join us in supporting our incredible Canadian talent today.

"One of the reasons that Canada is a great country lies in government and private institutional support for the creative arts. Through this latest initiative which establishes unprecedented unity between public and private resources Telefilm Canada’s Talent Fund will be a world leader in developing and sustaining gifted filmmakers who will go on to broaden the impact of Canadian artists."
