CTV confirms a five-year funding commitment to the National Screen Institute

WINNIPEG, /CNW/ – CTVglobemedia has underscored its commitment to the continued training of Canadian television writers and producers with a contribution to the National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) of $650,000 over
five years.

This contribution, to support the NSI Totally Television training program, extends the partnership established many years ago between CTV and NSI. The creation of NSI Totally Television was made possible through CTV and the CTV-BCE Benefits back in 2002. With this current extension of support, via CTV/CHUM Benefits, Canadian television writers and producers will continue to receive the training they need to take the next steps in their careers and to help advance their projects towards securing development and broadcast deals.

“CTV is committed to reinvesting in the growth and success of the Canadian television industry,” says Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc.. “Over the years we’ve seen our support of NSI Totally Television pay huge dividends in the professional training provided to the next generation of television content creators. NSI graduates produce quality series concepts that have been developed and broadcast nationally, providing great Canadian programming. We’re very proud to continue this partnership with NSI.

“NSI and CTV have a strong history as partners in training,” says Susan Millican, National Screen Institute CEO. “It’s a vote of confidence that CTV has chosen to continue its support of NSI Totally Television. It can take years for a television show to move from idea to script through development and finally to the TV screen, meaning that long-term commitment to training is necessary to ensure long-term results.”

NSI Totally Television is an intensive and individualized TV series development program for writer/producer teams. Its ten month curriculum culminates with attendance at the Banff World Television Festival where participants pitch their projects to broadcasters.
