ACIC – Independent Filmmaker Assistance Program

The French Program of the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) provides supplementary assistance for the production of French-language films from across Canada that are particularly innovative in form and content and that run the risk of otherwise not being produced.

Requests for assistance, including the application form and all required documents, may be submitted at any time.

Assistance can be provided in the form of production and post-production technical services that are directly linked to making the film.

ACIC/UQAM partnership

Since 2012, the NFB ACIC program has been collaborating with the École des médias de la Faculté des communications de l’UQAM and with the Chaire René-Malo in order to offer a grant of the best documentary hope to a graduate student, for the production of a short documentary.

The ACIC brochure includes all relevant information and forms and is available in Acrobat (PDF) format (in French only).
