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.
We are so proud to be play a role in administering the #MVPproject, who announced their Round One recipients today.

Our sincere congratulations to all, and of course, to the @_MVP_Project. ?

In addition to the above recipients, part of the funds from every MVP Project funding round will go toward a Curated Music Video Production, which commissions a piece from one recording artist and director combination who have previously collaborated. For this round, the recipients are recording artist Jessie Reyez with director Peter Huang.
