MBB and Canada Media Fund (CMF) announced the reopening of their incentive for the codevelopment and coproduction of digital media projects between Canadian producers and German producers based in Berlin-Brandenburg.
To qualify, projects must involve producers eligible under both organisations’ criteria. Projects will have to be created for digital platforms and can be either a game, a web series, multiplatform content, augmented reality or virtual reality experiences.
Projects will be evaluated according to a set of criteria, including innovative and creative elements, how they engage the targeted community and audience, the creative team, and the viability of the projects’ budget and timelines.
Now in its fourth year, the Canada-Germany Digital Media Incentive’s budget is set at 300.000 Euro, with each funding organization contributing half of the funds. Funding will take the form of a repayable advance in development and of a recoupable investment in production.
