Financial grant

On October 3, 2017 the province of Alberta announced a new grant program for the film, television and digital media industries. The new Screen-Based Production Grant will replace the Alberta Production Grant, which had been in place since 1998. The Alberta Production Grant was designed as an arts program and for small productions like made-for-TV movies and documentaries. The Screen-Based Production Grant is designed to address the needs of both commercial and cultural productions. It will make Can.$45 million (US$36 million) per year available to eligible production companies working in Alberta. The grant will offer productions a cash grant of up to 30 per cent of eligible production expenditures made in Alberta. Applications will be evaluated through a competitive process that awards points based on criteria such as economic or cultural benefit to Alberta, job creation, the use of Alberta cast and crews, the use of Alberta infrastructure such as the Calgary Film Centre and community or regional impact.
