Since 1995, BravoFACT (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) has distributed millions of dollars in awards to Canadians for the production of short form scripted projects. Many of the resulting works have been honoured with awards around the world.
Today, BravoFACT continues to provide awards to Canadian producers and directors who seek to create entertaining and engaging short-form content, both scripted and documentary, for Bell Media.
The next BravoFACT deadline will be posted here, please check back periodically.
BravoFACT’s objectives are to:
- Support and foster Canadian talent and production companies.
- Provide funding for the production of short-form projects, both scripted and documentary, suitable for Bell Media.
- Provide a broad platform for showcasing the resulting work, via the international reach of bravofact.com and BravoFACT’s YouTube channel.
BravoFACT welcomes applications from all regions of Canada.
A director or producer attached to an undelivered BravoFACT or BravoFACTUAL project may not apply.
50% of funds for both BravoFACT and BravoFACTUAL are awarded to female-led projects. To qualify as a female-led project either the Producer or Director must be female.
As an English language broadcaster, all projects must either be in English or contain English subtitles.
Please note that we do not fund 360 degree VR films or performance oriented projects (i.e. dance or musicals). Our focus is on narrative filmmaking.
