Screen-Based Production Grant (SPG)

The Government of Alberta is now offering the Screen-Based Production Grant to support the creation of film and television production in Alberta. This improved grant replaces the previous Alberta Production Grant. It offers up to 30 per cent of eligible production expenditures made in Alberta as well as a potential increase in the $5 million per-project cap of up to $7.5 million in funding per project. Applications are evaluated through a competitive process that awards points based on economic or cultural criteria such as job creation, the use of Alberta cast and crews, the use of Alberta infrastructure such as the Calgary Film Centre, diversity, and the use of Alberta subject matter.

Download the following program documentation for more information or visit the Alberta Media Fund website.


*The Screen-based Production Grant guidelines may be changed or modified as required, without notice.

Intake begins October 25, 2017 and closes November 30, 2017.


Note: Application documents and instructions will be published on first day of intake.
