Developing and promoting the Canadian audiovisual industry
Telefilm Canada is a Crown corporation reporting to Parliament through the Department of Canadian Heritage. Headquartered in MontrĂ©al, Telefilm provides services to the Canadian audiovisual industry by means of four regional offices located in Vancouver, Toronto, MontrĂ©al and Halifax.
Telefilm Canada is a federal cultural agency dedicated to the development and promotion of the Canadian audiovisual industry.
The Corporation acts as one of the Canadian government's principal instruments for providing strategic leverage to the private sector, supplying the film, television and new media industries with financial and strategic support. Telefilm's role is to foster the production of films, television programs and cultural products that reflect Canadian society, with its linguistic duality and cultural diversity, and to encourage their dissemination at home and abroad.
By funding high-quality productions and strengthening its industry support to facilitate the transition to the new multiplatform environment, Telefilm Canada is aiming for the long-term viability and development of Canada's audiovisual industry. Telefilm believes that the main measure of its success lies in the Canadian public's appetite for the works and products it funds. A second measure concerns the capacity to have a vigorous, dynamic industry able to successfully develop, produce, and market the funded works.
As a public sector agency and a partner to the industry, Telefilm upholds six core values:
* Celebrate the telling of unique Canadian stories;
* Actively champion a sustainable Canadian audiovisual culture;
* Reward performance and encourage new thinking;
* Promote diversity in all its forms in programs and policies;
* Be open, transparent and accessible to stakeholders, the industry and the public; and,
* Deliver best value to Parliament and to the Canadian public.
Telefilm Canada's strategic directions
In its new corporate plan titled From cinemas to cell phones: Telefilm Canada responds to the multiplatform challenge, the Corporation offers the Canadian industry and its partners a solid vision of the future that reiterates the vital importance of Canadian content and the need to take full advantage of digital platforms in order to reach wider audiences.
