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 Parties have partnered on this Incentive for a period of 3 years (2018 to 2020). The 2020-2021 Guidelines apply to the third and last year of this current partnership.

The amount available for this year of the 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 contribution will take the form of a repayable advance while the South African contribution will take the form of a repayable contribution.

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.
