Decima Poll: CTF-Telefilm Merger
News | 05/24/2001 4:00 am EDT
Most Decima Publishing subscribers (55%) responding to an informal online poll this month indicated that they favored an amalgamation of Telefilm Canada and the Canadian Television Fund (CTF) into a single production fund for film, television and multimedia. In contrast, 16% responded no to a merger, while 29% remained undecided. Canadian Heritage renewed the CTF for a transitional year when it expired in March. It has not decided what to do with the CTF, despite soliciting industry comments on the future of the fund before the election last November (CCR, Oct. 13/00).
