About MuchFACT:

MuchFACT (A Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) is the groundbreaking music video, EPK, viral video and website production fund, exclusively funded by MuchMusic and MuchMore, divisions of Bell Media. Established in 1984 to increase the number of quality music videos produced in Canada. It was also concurrent with the launch of MuchMusic which committed a percentage of its gross annual revenues to stimulate music video production. MusiquePlus became a sponsor when it launched in 1986, as did MuchMoreMusic in 1998. This also marked the creation of PromoFACT, an electronic press kit and website production fund for Canadian artists, independent record labels and artist management companies. Originally named VideoFACT, the organization changed its name to MuchFACT in September, 2009. Along with the name change, the PromoFACT program expanded to include digital music videos and other digital music-related content intended for viral distribution.
