Will be participating in the pre-selection jury for the IPF’s Web Series Program (aka Scripted Short Form Digital Series) in March. The program was created to stimulate Canada’s competitive creative and business skills in the digital storytelling world. It provides equity financing for content creators of original Canadian drama series for the web or mobile platforms.

Last year, 175 submissions were reviewed by a 40-member pre-selection jury where 30 were short-listed, and 17 were selected (11 English, 6 French) from a 2nd phase jury. Submissions are evaluated based on content, audience engagement strategies, production styles and processes, business and marketing plans, distribution and revenue potential.
