Since 1986, the national funding organization Harold Greenberg Fund supports the development of Canadian dramatic feature films.

The FUND - Fondation to Underwrite New Drama - was created in 1986 at the behest of Harold Greenberg who felt there was a genuine demand for high-quality Canadian scripts but insufficient resources to fund their development.
