The text provides for the granting of subsidies to support the financial consolidation of feature film projects. This includes those individuals or companies seeking financing for the production of fiction, documentary, animation and children’s films. It also specifies that the amount of this subsidy will be up to $12,150 dollars.

What documentation must I submit to apply for the subsidy?

Among the documentation that must be submitted by legal entities wishing to apply for the subsidy, the following are the most important:
