Four French-language projects receive monies from film fund
Four French-language author-driven films are the first to receive funding under the 2004-05 main program of the Canada Feature Film Fund’s selective component. Receiving funding are Robert Morin’s Et que Dieu bénisse l’Amérique, about a serial killer; Bernard Émond’s Jeanne et François, about a doctor and an orphan; Robin Aubert’s Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés, about a journalist investigating a string of mysterious disappearances; and Jean Beaudin’s Sans elle, which focuses on a violinist dealing with her mother’s disappearance. Twelve applications were submitted by the January 19 deadline. The next application deadline is April 13.
