Talent Fund


The Talent Fund supports Telefilm Canada's Talent to Watch program — a program unlike any other in Canada. This initiative is dedicated to the discovery, development, and promotion of talented emerging filmmakers, specifically prioritizing those who self-identify as Indigenous, Black, a Person of Colour, 2SLGBTQIA+, a woman, a Person with Disabilities, and/ or an official language minority community member.

As a career accelerator and launchpad, the Talent to Watch program contributes to a thriving film industry, and helps the next generation of storytellers embark on careers with longevity and impact.
