Funding for Canadian Women Screenwriters
Matthew Miller and Matt Johnson are starting a screenwriting program for women using our Zapruder Films slate development funding from Telefilm.
The details are linked below, but the basic idea is we're trying to counteract the insane gender imbalance Telefilm propagates with the way they distribute funding. Hopefully by redistributing their money ourselves we can start to slowly make space for Canadian women to participate in the nationally funded film industry in a more equitable way.
Zapruder Films receives the absolute lowest development funding available, but it's our hope that this program will encourage much larger production companies (with MUCH more funding) to join this initiative, assigning 100% of their Telefilm development funding to women writer/directors over the next year. (Come on Serendipity, what's the worse that could happen?)
