This submission by Communications MDR to the federal government’s public consultation on “Canadian Content in a Digital World” describes the challenges and opportunities for the screen-based production and distribution sectors in the digital age. The report provides nine recommendations for consideration by the federal government.

This report examines how national film and television programs are defined for the purpose of accessing government funding and tax credits in jurisdictions around the world. A key finding of the study was the relative lack of flexibility in the application of a definition of Canadian content, as compared to the jurisdictions examined, including the European Union and Australia and New Zealand.

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.
“This new study is a key part of the CMF’s objective of providing the Canadian digital media industry with valuable industry intelligence,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity. The report was shared with members of the Aboriginal Alliance of Media Producers (AAMP) producers’ summit at the 2014 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, as well as with participants at the 2014 World Indigenous Television Broadcasters Conference.

Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund, commented that, “the report provides solid evidence of the benefits to Canadians of the Canada Media Fund’s support to Aboriginal production over the years, which has helped to create jobs and provided access to a wide variety of compelling programs and interactive productions in Aboriginal languages.”

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity. The report was shared with members of the Aboriginal Alliance of Media Producers (AAMP) producers’ summit at the 2014 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, as well as with participants at the 2014 World Indigenous Television Broadcasters Conference.

Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund, commented that, “the report provides solid evidence of the benefits to Canadians of the Canada Media Fund’s support to Aboriginal production over the years, which has helped to create jobs and provided access to a wide variety of compelling programs and interactive productions in Aboriginal languages.”

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.

This submission by Communications MDR to the federal government’s public consultation on “Canadian Content in a Digital World” describes the challenges and opportunities for the screen-based production and distribution sectors in the digital age. The report provides nine recommendations for consideration by the federal government.

This report examines how national film and television programs are defined for the purpose of accessing government funding and tax credits in jurisdictions around the world. A key finding of the study was the relative lack of flexibility in the application of a definition of Canadian content, as compared to the jurisdictions examined, including the European Union and Australia and New Zealand.

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.
“This new study is a key part of the CMF’s objective of providing the Canadian digital media industry with valuable industry intelligence,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity.

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.
“This new study is a key part of the CMF’s objective of providing the Canadian digital media industry with valuable industry intelligence,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity. The report was shared with members of the Aboriginal Alliance of Media Producers (AAMP) producers’ summit at the 2014 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, as well as with participants at the 2014 World Indigenous Television Broadcasters Conference.

Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund, commented that, “the report provides solid evidence of the benefits to Canadians of the Canada Media Fund’s support to Aboriginal production over the years, which has helped to create jobs and provided access to a wide variety of compelling programs and interactive productions in Aboriginal languages.”

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity. The report was shared with members of the Aboriginal Alliance of Media Producers (AAMP) producers’ summit at the 2014 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, as well as with participants at the 2014 World Indigenous Television Broadcasters Conference.

Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund, commented that, “the report provides solid evidence of the benefits to Canadians of the Canada Media Fund’s support to Aboriginal production over the years, which has helped to create jobs and provided access to a wide variety of compelling programs and interactive productions in Aboriginal languages.”

This submission by Communications MDR to the federal government’s public consultation on “Canadian Content in a Digital World” describes the challenges and opportunities for the screen-based production and distribution sectors in the digital age. The report provides nine recommendations for consideration by the federal government.

This report examines how national film and television programs are defined for the purpose of accessing government funding and tax credits in jurisdictions around the world. A key finding of the study was the relative lack of flexibility in the application of a definition of Canadian content, as compared to the jurisdictions examined, including the European Union and Australia and New Zealand.

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.
“This new study is a key part of the CMF’s objective of providing the Canadian digital media industry with valuable industry intelligence,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

This submission by Communications MDR to the federal government’s public consultation on “Canadian Content in a Digital World” describes the challenges and opportunities for the screen-based production and distribution sectors in the digital age. The report provides nine recommendations for consideration by the federal government.

This report examines how national film and television programs are defined for the purpose of accessing government funding and tax credits in jurisdictions around the world. A key finding of the study was the relative lack of flexibility in the application of a definition of Canadian content, as compared to the jurisdictions examined, including the European Union and Australia and New Zealand.

This report provides the results of a major examination of recent trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content.nIntegrating key insights by industry leaders and examples of successful monetization models and strategies being used by Canadian companies, the report provides an overview and analysis of recent global trends and key models being used to monetize digital media content. As discussed in the report, digital media are being monetized in a rapidly evolving and complex ecosystem requiring a sophisticated understanding of consumer behaviour as well as an appetite for experimentation and risk. 

“Understanding the opportunities and challenges afforded by different monetization models is critical for companies to succeed today in increasingly competitive and global markets,” said Serge Landry, Executive Director of the CIAIC.
“This new study is a key part of the CMF’s objective of providing the Canadian digital media industry with valuable industry intelligence,” said Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund.

This study profiled for the first time the state of private financing for interactive digital media in Canada, based on in-depth interviews with private equity investors, investment and financing agents, game developers and game publishers, banks and government funders in Canada, the US and Europe, including as well as an extensive review of Canadian and international literature. The study identified gaps in the financing landscape and recommended strategies to foster a virtuous circle of private investment. The recommendations put forward by the report led to the creation of an accelerator program by the Canada Media Fund to encourage greater investment readiness amongst Canadian interactive digital media developers.

Karen Thorne-Stone, President & Chief Executive Officer of the OMDC, was quoted as saying that the study, “…provides valuable insight into the financing gaps that limit the potential of Ontario’s dynamic interactive digital media sector,” adding that the study also points the way to making support for digital content producers more flexible, efficient and effective.

Bringing together for the first time in one study an analysis of the funding for Aboriginal films, television and interactive digital media, the report filled an important gap in the understanding of Aboriginal screen-based production. Examining the five-year period 2007-2008 to 2011-2012, it paints a portrait of a dynamic and vibrant industry sector. Among the findings, the study reported that the sector created over 3,300 full-time jobs, typically employing Aboriginal Peoples, generating almost $173 million in production activity. The report was shared with members of the Aboriginal Alliance of Media Producers (AAMP) producers’ summit at the 2014 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Festival, as well as with participants at the 2014 World Indigenous Television Broadcasters Conference.

Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the Canada Media Fund, commented that, “the report provides solid evidence of the benefits to Canadians of the Canada Media Fund’s support to Aboriginal production over the years, which has helped to create jobs and provided access to a wide variety of compelling programs and interactive productions in Aboriginal languages.”
