Phase Two

Phase II – Production (January – August)

Up to four Teams will be accepted into this phase of the program. Teams accepted into this phase of the Program will enter pre-production with the understanding that the final green light of their production is contingent upon the approval of their final proposal.

During this period Teams will receive further training and mentorship while adhering to a schedule of deliverables, leading up to a final proposal package. Each Team will present their final proposal plans to the FILM 5 Core Support Team who will assess the project’s readiness for going ahead with production.

Approved Teams will receive $8,000 in cash and over $20,000 in services to complete a short film. They will complete production in April 2018, and see their projects through post-production to the final delivery of a digital file in June 2018.

Finished films receive support from a Distribution Mentor, are given a small distribution / marketing budget and enter into a broadcast license agreement with CBC.
