Video

The Video program contributes to the cost of producing music videos for eligible Canadian sound recordings by artists rated 2 and 3.

Components in this program

A maximum of $20,000 in video funding is available per qualifying release per fiscal year, across all programs. This means that applications for video support within this program will diminish the amount that can be requested in the video component of any other program.

The only component in this program is Video.

Who is Eligible

  • Artist 2
  • Artist 3
  • Artist (Approved)

Unsigned artists may apply on their own behalf if they have an Artist Rating of 2 or higher. If the artist has an Aritst Rating of 2 or higher but is signed to a Canadian record label (with any applicant rating), the record label must apply. MEC-supported companies are not eligible to apply. Artist applicants must have an approved applicant profile in addition to the Artist 2 or Artist 3 rating. Record labels must have a reviewed and rated applicant profile.

Deadlines

This program has rolling deadlines. You can apply multiple times throughout the year, up to the funding maximum.

Funding & Payments

Funding is a grant. 50% of the grant is paid out on approval and the remainder on final completion. FACTOR will contribute 75% of the total eligible budget up to a project maximum of $5,000 for Artist 2, and $20,000 for Artist 3.

Assessment Process

FACTOR staff assess the eligibility of the projects and costs and make a recommendation to the Board of Directors for their approval. Assessment time is six to eight weeks from the date of application.
