Bell Fund chair asks CRTC to change small market fund formula, CTF eligibility

News | 10/18/2006 4:00 am EDT

Below is an edited version of a submission from Paul Hoffert, chair of the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund, tendered as part of the CRTC’s review of the regulatory framework governing the over-the-air television broadcasting system. In it, Hoffert notes that a small market fund created in 2005 competes with the Bell Fund and other independent funds for resources, and this competition has hindered independent TV and new media production. He also urges the regulator to relax criteria requiring that projects submitted to the Canadian Television Fund have a pre-commitment from a licensed broadcaster.
