Overview

The Screen-Based Production Grant supports the creation of film and television production in Alberta.

As of April 2019, there were $92.25 million worth of grant commitments scheduled for payment between 2019 and 2022.

The grant allows for 2 payments in two separate fiscal years:

  • first payment is eligible upon completion of principal photography and receipt of related reporting
  • second payment is made upon receipt of final reporting and a copy of the production

Grant agreements contain a maximum funding amount eligible to the application, but in some instances, the production costs will be less than anticipated and a lower payment made. As well, there are situations where a production will not go ahead after a grant agreement has been issued and commitment will be cancelled.

Payments are scheduled based on milestone dates provided in the application.  In some cases, factors may affect the applicants’ ability to deliver according to those dates and payments are rescheduled.
