Saskatchewan filmmakers frequently sell completed film and TV projects to international audiences.
One of the best ways to get these deals done is face-to-face at conventions and festivals across the country and around the world.
Creative Saskatchewan's Market Travel Grant helps producers cover the costs of airfare and accommodations so they can meet distributors in person and sell their shows.
This fiscal year, the funds available to filmmakers in the Market Travel Grant have been fully committed. Those investments helped Saskatchewan producers connect with buyers in Banff, Ottawa, Miami, Mexico and France.
The Market Travel Grant is now closed to Screen-Based Media applicants for the remainder of the fiscal year, ending March 31, 2018.
Creative Saskatchewan congratulates all producers who reached new audiences with the help of the Market Travel Grant.
Support for Saskatchewan filmmakers remains available through Creative Saskatchewan's new Micro-Budget Feature Film Production Grant. Up to $50,000 per project is available. Filmmakers must apply by Nov 30, 2017 at 4pm Saskatchewan time.
