Creative Saskatchewan and Sasktel have announced a new partnership to administer the Creative Saskatewan SaskTel Equity Fund. Designed to provide funding support to Saskatchewan-based television production, the Equity Fund is not connected to other grants provided by Creative Saskatchewan.
The CRTC regulates that SaskTel, as a provider of television services, contributes financially to the development of Canadian content. SaskTel has the option to contribute funds to the CMF, or, a CRTC certified independent production fund. The Creative Saskatchewan SaskTel Equity Fund is certified by the CRTC. Sasktel makes the maximum contribution permitted by the CRTC so that Saskatchewan producers have as much support as possible.
Applications will be adjudicated by a Jury of industry professionals, with preference given to applicants demonstrating significant economic, cultural and employment benefit to the Saskatchwan film industry. Interested media production companies can visit the submission website.
