***MFM is in the midst of completing an extensive research project, funded by the OMDC. Please take some time to complete our 50 question survey in order for us to more accurately paint a picture of the current state of Northern Ontario’s film industry. Upon its completion, this study will be published by the OMDC and used as an important guide for policy making and strategic planning when it comes to Northern Ontario’s cultural industries.


This survey and all the data it collects will remain completely anonymous. MFM will be selecting survey participants to conduct an interview with where more in-depth questions will be asked. Please send an email to if you would like to express interest in taking part in one of these interviews or have any other questions.***
