The Nova Scotia Film & Television Production Incentive Fund provides funding to facilitate the production of projects in Nova Scotia in order to support and expand the film and television production industry in Nova Scotia and to create economic value for a broad group of Nova Scotians, including, in particular, key creative positions such as Nova Scotia resident directors, writers, and principal performers.
