The program supports individual professional Ontario-based media artists/directors working with film, video, audio, digital, new media, video and electronic games, and virtual reality as independent artist-controlled art forms in the production and post-production phases of their projects.
The program’s priority is to support projects that are innovative – in content, point of view, form, style, technique or process – and that further your development as an artist.
