BravoFACT (Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) is a Canadian fund established in 1995 to fund the creation of Canadian arts-based short films and videos. Bravo!FACT funds shorts from various subject matters, genres and styles including animation, drama, comedy, dance, and more. Bravo!FACT was established in 1995 by Bravo, a Canadian specialty television channel devoted to the arts, as a condition of licence. The fund is supported entirely by Bravo!, and the shorts air on Bravo! weekly, on In Short[1] and previously on BravoFACT Presents.

BravoFACT's objectives are:

"The idea is for artists to be given a chance to have their work exposed to the greater television viewing audience," said executive director Judy Gladstone.[2] Bravo!FACT is the largest funder of short films in Canada, including I Met the Walrus. The fund also partnered with the National Film Board of Canada on Shorts in Motion: The Art of Seduction, one of the first multi-platform programs produced in Canada aimed at the mobile audience.[3] The project won accolades around the world, including an International Interactive Emmy nomination, Best Made for Mobile Video Service at the GSM Global Mobile Awards (Barcelona, 2007) and Banff World Television Award for Best Original Content for Mobile (Banff, 2007).
