March 28, 2022, 10:00 AM
FAVA is a Designated Partner for the Telefilm Talent to Watch Program. This Program supports emerging filmmakers looking to finance the production stage of their first feature film project(s).
We previously hosted an in-depth info session to help support you in putting together your application with complete documents and tips for a successful pitch video; you can find that video below if you wish to review.
If you are going to apply through FAVA in the Industry Partner Stream, please send all the required documents to [email protected] by March 28th, 2022 at 10:00am MST. The list of required documents and all the document templates can be found on the telefilm website below. We had originally set our deadline to submit to FAVA at March 14th, but to allow for more time to submit, we have extended our deadline.
If you are applying through the Festival Selection Stream (you have directed a short film that was selected at a recognized film festival) or the Filmmaker Apply-Direct Stream (emerging filmmakers who are: Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, Women, Gender-diverse and 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals, Persons with disabilities and members of Official Language Minority Communities). Then you will apply directly to Telefilm via Dialogue between April 19 – May 3, 2022.
