PROGRAMS


 

Rogers Cable Network Fund

Rogers Cable Inc. created the Rogers Cable Network Fund to support the production of first-run cable network programming inCanada.

The Rogers Cable Network Fund has been set up to provide approximately $9 million a year (based on a percentage of revenues) in equity financing to Canadian independent producers for television programming triggered by a first window broadcast on a Canadian cable network (i.e. a licensed Canadian specialty or premium service).

The goal of Rogers Cable Network Fund is to encourage the production of cable network programming from across the country. To achieve this, the Fund will invest up to 20% of the lesser of the total production budget or final cost of eligible projects to a maximum of $500,000 per project.

The Fund supports the following programming genres: drama; documentaries; children’s programming; educational; instructional; performing arts and variety programming.

Upcoming deadlines: TBA

 

Rogers Documentary Fund

Rogers established the Rogers Documentary Fund in 1996 to foster the growth of documentary film production in this country in both official languages. Its creation will help sustain Canada’s tradition of quality, independently produced documentary films and videos and ensure that these productions are seen by the widest possible audience.

The Fund will provide financing to original, high-quality, provocative and/or controversial documentaries which are licensed for prime time national broadcast. The Rogers Documentary Fund will inject up to $2 million a year into documentary filmmaking in Canada.

There will be up to three funding deadlines per year. Projects will be selected for funding ten to twelve weeks after each deadline. Participation from the Fund will be in the form of non-recoupable advances. Funds will be advanced to productions according to a pre-determined schedule.

Upcoming deadlines: TBA

 

Rogers Telefund

Rogers Telefund, established in 1980 by Rogers Communications Inc., provides financing assistance for the production of quality Canadian television programming. Rogers Telefund operates primarily as an interim or bridge lender, advancing funds against secured commitments to eligible, independent Canadian producers in order that production can be completed before all production financing payments are advanced. Secured commitments usually take the form of Canadian broadcast license agreements and funding agencies’ equity investment agreements and commitments from the Canada Media Fund. The Telefund’s interim loans fulfill a critical need in the financing of independent Canadian productions by providing funds when they are most needed – at the production stage.

The Telefund, now in excess of $34 million, is a revolving fund: as monies are repaid, they become available to fund other projects. Rogers encourages projects from all regions in Canada and traditionally a significant portion of its’ commitments are made to projects produced outside Toronto and Montreal.
