Welcome to TiP 2.0!
The Toronto Indie Production (TiP) program permits eligible Canadian producers to engage ACTRA performers on long or short-form low-budget dramatic productions with budgets less than $350,000.
TiP rates are lower than ACTRA’s Independent Production Agreement (IPA) minimum rates and represent a significant financial incentive to emerging filmmakers from the ACTRA Toronto membership.
TiP allows producers to work with committed professional performers who are willing to invest 60-80% of their fees back into film production in exchange for back-end performance royalties.TiP’s program co-ordinator, working on a project-by project basis, assists producers in walking through the steps to bring Canadian stories to our screens.
To find out more about the evolution of the TiP program and what it means to the community of filmmakers who have participated in it, check out the TiP Legacy Project
