Offering new opportunities for filmmakers who have historically been at a disadvantage in accessing financing and making their unique voices heard, the CBC Breaking Barriers Film Fund supports the production of feature films from underrepresented Canadian creators. With the new fund, CBC is seeking English-language feature film projects that are written or directed by Canadian women, Indigenous persons, visible minorities and persons with a disability who have had at least one feature-length film showcased at a recognized film festival, and which are not in the documentary genre and not already in production. The projects must achieve at least six out of 10 points on the CAVCO scale and have an existing first draft script. Eligible projects will be judged on the film’s creative merit. There are no application deadlines rather applications should be submitted when they are creatively ready.
