These Guidelines are divided into seven Sections as follows:

Introduction

The Canada-South Africa Co-Development Incentive ( the Incentive ) is a collaboration between the Canada Media Fund (CMF or Party ) and the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF or Party ) (the CMF and NFVF collectively the Parties ) to fund the co-development of eligible television projects between producers from Canada and South Africa.

The 2021-2022 Guidelines apply to a one (1) year renewed partnership signed between the Parties.

The amount available for the 2021-2022 Incentive will be CAN$195,000 (or approximately ZAR2,400,000) with CAN$97,500 (or approximately ZAR1,200,000) contributed by each of the CMF and NFVF. The Canadian and South African contributions will both take the form of a repayable advance.

To be considered for funding through the Incentive, projects must comply with both Parties' general funding criteria, with the CMF determining eligibility for the Canadian portion of a project and NFVF determining eligibility for the South African portion of the project. Projects will be evaluated and chosen by a committee comprised of representatives from each of the CMF and NFVF through a selective process (using the Evaluation Criteria listed below). It is important for Applicants to note that eligibility to or financing through the Incentive does not guarantee the Applicant eligibility or financing for further CMF or NFVF funding in development or in production.

The total maximum contribution for each project funded through the Incentive shall be the lesser of CAN$65,000 (approximately ZAR 800,000), consisting of (a) a CMF contribution which shall be the lesser of CAN$32,500 (approximately ZAR400,000) or 75% of the Canadian portion of the development budget and (b) a NFVF contribution which shall be approximately CAN$32,500 (ZAR400,000) or 75% of the South African portion of the development budget.

The total contribution from each of the CMF and NFVF for each project will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

While the ownership, financial control and creative contributions shall be determined in the co-development agreement between the applicable international co-producers, the minimum minority co-producer share shall not be less than 20%. As a general guideline, the CMF and NFVF encourage that such elements be proportional to each country's respective funding contributions.

A project co-developed with a third country producer is also eligible provided that the Canadian and South African producers have significant financial and creative involvement in the project (i.e., the third country producer must not own more than 15% ownership or control of the project).

Project Eligibility

Eligible projects must meet the following criteria:
