Member Initiated Production (MIP)

The MIP is designed to stimulate the desire of ACTRA members to come together and create original works of art without having the financial resources to pay established daily fees to performers. It is also intended to encourage ACTRA members to advance their skills as actors and allow them to develop their skills in other key creative areas.

Under this Program, the role of the ‘producer’ is played by the partnership that is created by the members who come together. ACTRA’s role – through ACTRA PRS – is to represent performers’ interests in the commercial exploitation of the project in the market place.


ACTRA Indie Production (AIP)

The AIP Program was designed to facilitate non-commercial, low-budget productions (under C$250,000) as set out in the AIP Guidelines.
