Tim Baker, Milk and Bone, Sean Leon, more selected for new Music Video Production Project

The jury selected nine recipients from over 300 applications

RBC and the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television have just announced the nine grant recipients for their new Music Video Production (MVP) Project, which provides funds and networking support to both musicians and filmmakers to create and produce videos.

Starting in October 2018, Canadians who self-identified as “Emerging Artists” began submitting music and video treatments to a jury of music and media professionals, who would select the recipients to receive mentorship, networking opportunities, and funding support. After receiving over 300 applicants from across the country, the jury has selected nine recipients for the MVP Project.
