New IP optioning pilot program for production companies based in BC.

The IP BC Pilot Program supports the pre-development of fiction, documentary and animated series, feature films and one-off programs for television and streamer platform networks and for theatrical distribution, via specific funding to enable the optioning of Intellectual Property by BC-based production companies, with an enhanced focus on optioning IP for adaptation that originates in BC or was created by a BC-based creator.

Examples of pre-existing creative and cultural IP properties include but are not limited to novels, creative non-fiction books, comics, podcasts, songs, magazine articles, video games and stage plays. Ultimately this program will improve the competitive position of BC-based production companies seeking to develop, produce and sell Canadian-owned content in domestic and international markets.
