Comments on Funding:
Funding under this component is at up to 75% of total eligible budget of the Comprehensive Artist application.
The funding limits for the Video component are:
– $40,000 per FACTOR fiscal year, across all programs for Artist 3;
– $20,000 per FACTOR fiscal year, across all programs for Artist 2 and General.
General artists are not eligible for the Video program; however, the Video component is available to General artists through all full-length sound recording and marketing programs.
Recipient Accessibility Support Fund: FACTOR grant recipients are eligible for top-up support to their project funding of up to $5,000 each fiscal year, not to exceed $5,000 per project for costs related to accessibility. Eligible costs claimed under this fund will be reimbursed at 100%.
All applications must include the Sound Recording component. Applicants may apply for any other component funding at the same time as the Sound Recording, or after the sound recording is approved.
Multiple, repeat repeat component applications are possible as appropriate for the project’s timeline, subject to the program or annual limits
Other Things to Note:
1. Where possible, FACTOR must be recognized in the end credits, including the FACTOR logo, acknowledgments, and the Canada wordmark. This includes all digital and physical copies of the video wherever production credits for the track may be listed, even if the video content is being licensed, co-produced, shared or released outside of Canada by a third party.
2. In 2022 the program guidelines for 2022-2023 were published April 2022.
