Versioning Program

The Canada Media Fund’s (CMF) Versioning Program is designed to expand the accessibility of CMF-funded projects to other audiences by adding voice-overs and/or subtitles to projects. Versioning increases revenue potential in other markets when Canadian projects gain further national and international sales. Projects receive funding on a first-come, first-served basis.

In 2011-2012 the CMF’s $1.5 M Versioning Program was almost fully subscribed, supporting 25 projects, a significant increase from 15 in 2010-2011. The majority of projects (19/25) were initially produced in the English-language and half of the projects (12/25) were from the children's and youth genre. The program funded 7 documentary projects (including one documentary digital media project) compared to one in 2010-2011. Of the television projects, there was one one-off, one mini-series and three MOWs, while the rest of the projects were series. One variety and performing arts project was versioned into Italian.
