The MVP Project is dedicated to supporting and promoting emerging artists and filmmakers through opportunities to create music video content that speaks to Canadians and viewers around the world. The fund is committed to providing opportunities to a diverse group of high-quality Canadian talent. The MVP Project invites applications from all qualified applicants, especially those who identify as women, non-binary, LGBTQ, Indigenous, as a person with disabilities or as a Person of Colour. The goal of the MVP Project is to enable all storytellers to explore their creativity, hone their filmmaking skills, and to encourage growth and development within the music & film industries.
