Telefilm has recently announced a new program
to support English screenwriting in Quebec. Deadline is February 13. It's intended to give a lot of support and professional feedback, and a couple thousand bucks, to help develop either a TV project or a feature. You have to be a produced Quebec anglophone writer working with a Quebec "anglophone producer."
"Anglophone producers" are producers who have produced 51% or more in English. Which leads me to ask: who are the anglophone producers in La Belle Province? Aside from Galafilm, Muse and Kevin Tierney, who qualifies? Cirrus and CitéAmérique both are strong producers of anglo work, but probably would not qualify for the program as they produce more than 51% in French, I'm guessing.
Any of you kind readers care to add to this very short list?
