Other forms of name: Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation

The Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation was established in 1990 to promote and subsidize Nova Scotia's motion picture industry. The objects of the corporation are to assist and promote the development of the private-sector film and video industry in the areas of funding, marketing, promotion, training and education; to create and stimulate employment and investment and encourage the making of film and video productions in Nova Scotia; to assist and coordinate the giving of financial or other assistance by any Government departments, boards, commissions or agencies to the provincial film and video industry; to coordinate the provision of any financial or other assistance by any departments, boards, commissions or agencies from other jurisdictions to the film and video industry; to encourage and promote public acquisition of the Province's film and video heritage from the private sector; and to administer the Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation Fund, which not only benefits local private-sector film and video producers but also supports the making of film and video productions locally. In 2008 the crown corporation's name was changed to Film Nova Scotia.
