Screen-Based Production Grant (SPG)
The Screen-Based Production Grant (SPG) supports film and television production in Alberta. It offers up to 30 per cent of eligible production expenditures made in
Alberta as well as a potential increase in the $5 million per-project cap of up to $7.5 million in funding per project.
Applications are evaluated through a competitive process that awards points based on economic or
cultural criteria such as job creation, the use of
Alberta cast and crews, the use of Alberta infrastructure such as the Calgary Film Centre, diversity, and the use of Alberta subject matter.
This improved grant replaces the previous Alberta Production Grant (APG).
Application intake is now closed.
