Rogers OMNI releases production benefits package details
Rogers OMNI Television has unveiled details of its $950,000 benefits package for independent documentary production in British Columbia and Manitoba over seven years. A maximum of $250,000 will be spent each year, with proposals being reviewed twice a year: January 1 to March 1, and September 1 to November 15. The money will go toward the creation of 30-minute and 60-minute religious and faith-based documentaries. The benefits package relates to Rogers’ purchase of NOWTV (CHNU-TV Fraser Valley), now called OMNI TV BC, and the launch of CIIT-TV Winnipeg, referred to as OMNI TV Manitoba (CCR, June 8/05). More information about applying to the fund is available online at www.omnibc.ca/info/funds/.
