Important Message regarding recent changes to the CRTC policy framework for Certified Independent Funds:
On August 25th 2016, the CRTC released its changes to the Policy framework for Certified Independent Production Funds, which includes The Bell Fund. As a result, we need to pivot. The Bell Fund management and Board of Directors have immediately begun assessing the impact of these regulatory changes against the scope of our current activities. As a critical part of this review we will consult with our stakeholders in order to assist in the Fund’s evolution and programs. These changes require the Fund to postpone the 2017 program application deadlines. We will do our best to minimize uncertainty and will communicate the results of our assessment and any changes to the Bell Fund programs as soon as possible.
Applications for all funding programs are now submitted online. No hard-copies required. Accepting existing application forms as “Project Details”. For cross-platform projects both a TV and DM application must be completed.Apply online
Funding decisions will be announced 6-8 weeks after the deadline.More Information
