Alberta Media Fund

The Alberta Media Fund (AMF) provides support to organizations and individuals involved in the Cultural Industries, which include screen-based media production, book and magazine publishing and sound recordings.

Screen-Based Production Grant (SPG)

The Government of Alberta is now offering the Screen-Based Production Grant to support the creation of film and television production in Alberta. This improved grant replaces the previous Alberta Production Grant. It offers up to 30 per cent of eligible production expenditures made in Alberta as well as a potential increase in the $5 million per-project cap of up to $7.5 million in funding per project. Applications are evaluated through a competitive process that awards points based on economic or cultural criteria such as job creation, the use of Alberta cast and crews, the use of Alberta infrastructure such as the Calgary Film Centre, diversity, and the use of Alberta subject matter.
