TeleFilm's Success Index

Michael Melski

TeleFilm Canada helps filmmakers make movies by giving them funding.

In the last decade or so, Cape Breton in particular and the east coast of Canada in general has been very good and getting to access to those dollars to create films like Rhonda's Party, made by Cape Bretoner's Ashley McKenzie and Nelson MacDonald

But we might see the last of that kind of film made here..or anywhere in Canada for that matter.

TeleFilm has changed the way it funds..and some producers thing it favours the big boys in Toronto

The problem is the agency's new Success Index.

Michael Melski is an award-winning director and producer.
