To keep its competitive edge in this growing, highly competitive global market, DHX Media plays to its strengths of innovation, developing talent, and smart growth.
Where NSBI comes in.
In 2016, DHX Media’s production This Hour Has 22 Minutes (Series XXIV) received funding from the Nova Scotia Film and Television Production Incentive Fund (NSFPIF) through NSBI.
With the support of NSBI and the Nova Scotia Film and Television Production Incentive Fund, DHX Media, and Nova Scotia, remain strong competitors in the multi-billion-dollar global content industry, and continue to develop and engage an important pool of talent in Nova Scotia, year after year. - David Regan, DHX Media
