Cultural Industries Ontario North (CION) is a newly-created pan Northern Ontario cultural organization serving the needs of everyone working in music, film, television and digital media across Northern Ontario. This non-profit organization was established to assume the role and branding of Music and Film in Motion (MFM), and to advance its efforts to promote and encourage increased media arts production throughout Northern Ontario.  Since the return of MFM to full activity in early June 2014, CION has implemented plans aimed to reshape programs and services previously offered by MFM, and to introduce new programs and services, with the overall goal of meeting the needs of an industry that has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade.

MFM, as a division of CION, will continue to advance the development and promotion of Northern Ontario’s film, television, digital media and music industries, to attract investment in film and television industry projects and create new revenue opportunities for Northern Ontario communities, artists and production professionals. 

We provide support to emerging and established musicians, artists, and filmmakers while providing all consultations completely free of charge.
