Alberta Film & TV Tax Credit and Alberta Made Production Grant

On March 26, 2021 the Government of Alberta (GOA)  announced the decision to remove the per-project cap under the Alberta Film and Television Tax Credit (FTTC).  This is great news and we will continue to encourage the GOA to increase the amount of support for projects under $500,000, to have more than two deadlines per year, to increase the amount of support for development, and to have more than one deadline per year as these projects are also an important part of having a healthy screen industry.  We would also like to thank the GOA for providing some assistance to allow WIFT Alberta to continue to deliver programming over the next twelve months.
