Org funds Ontario pics and docs

$1.7 million invested in Toronto fest vets

TORONTO — The Ontario Media Development Corp. Film Fund has invested C$1.8 million ($1.7 million) in five features and two docs in development or production in Ontario, it was announced Wednesday.

Those chosen include projects from Toronto Film Festival vets Clement Virgo (“Poor Boy’s Game”), Laurie Lynd (“Breakfast With Scot”) and Ron Mann (“Rat Fink,” “Grass”).

The fund allows Ontario-based producers to complete financing with contributions of up to $23,554 for development projects and up to $376,862 for productions.

As Toronto readies to screen seven features assisted by OMDC funds — “Adoration,” “Blindness,” “Heaven on Earth,” “Examined Life,” “One Week,” “Real Time” and “Toronto Stories” — the cameras are ready to roll on possible Toronto ’09 contenders “Cairo Time” (directed by Ruba Nadda), “Leslie” (Reg Harkema), “Ruby” (Djordje Milicevic), “Suck” (Rob Stefaniuk) and “Victoria Day” (David Bezmozgis).

Selections for the OMDC Film Fund coin are made by a jury. To date, the fund has supported 29 completed films.
