According to an email sent to Canadian documentary filmmakers by Telefilm Canada, the Canada Media Fund (CMF) POV program has extended its Dec. 6 deadline into the New Year in order to give doc makers the chance to find the broadcaster needed to access the fund’s cash. The CMF’s $3.5 million English POV program was set up to give documentary filmmakers a helping hand. While 21 projects were approved for funding, many doc makers were having a hard time making the broadcast sale they needed to access the cash.
