Two Nunavut media producers get approved for funding by the Canada Media Fund

Aboriginal Program
On July 2, the CMF approved the funding for 15 Aboriginal Program applications, including 15 television components and 11 digital media components.
Of the total, 4 of the television components were children's and youth projects, 10 were documentaries and 1 was a variety project. The digital media components approved for funding were all websites, except for one mobile device application. Approximately $4.4 million was committed to the television components and $1.0 million to the digital media components for a total of $5.4 million.
These decisions and funding commitments are preliminary, as all requests must undergo a contracting process. Funding is not final until contracts are signed. An updated list will be published once contracting is complete.
