MEDIA CONVERGENCE: CANADA AT THE VANGUARD
13/12/2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm CMT
The Canada Media Fund (CMF) was created to invest in the production of successful, convergent television and digital media content that is accessible through multiple platforms. The CMF funding model was the first in the world to introduce convergence requirements tied to its investments in traditional broadcast, in addition to dedicated funds for experimental media such as VR, AR, AI and enabling technologies. Valerie Creighton, President and CEO, CMF will discuss this successful Canadian model, provide examples, and illustrate why this funding mechanism has inspired other agencies and jurisdictions to follow suit.
