MESSAGE

from our Partner

A message from our partner

Behind every film and television production are creative minds, talented artists, and countless hours of work. While any creative endeavour begins with inspiration, bringing it to the screen requires considerable effort and resources.

For nearly three decades, the Harold Greenberg Fund has provided continuous financial support enabling cinematic ideas to become reality and poignant stories to be told. As a partner of the Fund, Bell Media shares its mission to support creators so that their talent can shine and enrich our collective culture.

Over the 2014-2015 fiscal year, the English- and French-language programs of the Harold Greenberg Fund have invested more than $5.5 million to support 156 productions, including Xavier Dolan’s highly anticipated The Life and Death of John F. Donovan as well as Juste la fin du monde, in addition to Alain Desrochers’s Bon Cop, Bad Cop II.

As proof of its success and impact, several productions supported by the Harold Greenberg Fund have gone on to wow audiences and win national and international awards throughout the years. Most recently, eight films supported by the Fund were part of the official selection of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), including Closet Monster, the Best Canadian Feature Film; and My Internship in Canada, which earned an honourable mention. Moreover, Bang Bang Baby won the prestigious Claude Jutra award at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards, while Atom Egoyan’s Remember and Anton Corbijn’s Life were added to the official selections of the Venice International Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival, respectively.

As a partner of the Harold Greenberg Fund, Bell Media remains committed to helping finance Canadian productions, so that they may bring their creators’ unique visions and voices to the world.
