The Canada Media Fund publishes CMF Trends, an analysis blog that helps readers better understand the ongoing changes happening in the world of digital media and technologies. CMF Trends is a curator of information. Not only does the blog filter the news on market developments, it also synthesizes all the “noise” created by the overabundance of available data.
CMF Trends favours a collaborative approach with external bloggers based in Canada and around the world. CMF Trends contributors are selected based on their expert knowledge, experience and influential power in the field of broadcast television and digital media.
The CMF also published the Crowdfunding in a Canadian Context information website, intended to help understand this new financing option from the targeted perspective of the Canadian creative industry. It also offers a comprehensive directory of crowdfunding platforms accessible to Canadians.
The CMF also works closely with various partners by contributing to or commissioning research projects on a wide range of topics relevant to the industry.
The Canada Media Fund (CMF) fosters, develops, finances and promotes the production of Canadian content and applications for all audiovisual media platforms. The CMF guides Canadian content towards a competitive global environment by fostering industry innovation, rewarding success, enabling a diversity of voice and promoting access to content through public and private sector partnerships.
The CMF receives financial contributions from the Government of Canada and Canada’s cable, satellite and IPTV distributors.
