WIFTV's Response to Telefilm's Commitment to Emerging Talent

posted on 12:30 PM, November 29, 2017

We are pleased with Telefilm’s increased support to the Micro Budget program, and by their recent announcements related to an increase in female directors, producers and writers, however, we remain cautious as actual numbers have yet to be released and increases have not yet been seen at the higher budget levels, nor are they expected to be seen.  The micro budget program is for ultra-low budget productions and while gender equity in the number of positions is great, there needs to be equality in funding if we are to see any real change in the industry. We look forward to seeing the final numbers when they are released in March.
