EAVE On Demand Access Program

Empowering BIPOC producers in Canada to become distinct storytelling voices in the global marketplace. Presented by the National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) with support from presenting partner Canada Media Fund (CMF).

The EAVE On Demand Access Program provides training and mentorship for producers in Canada who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) to develop themselves, their projects and their companies to compete in the global market.

The European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE) has been a major agent in promoting cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration for over 30 years, consistently empowering independent producers.

The National Screen Institute and Canada Media Fund have partnered with EAVE to bring this training to BIPOC producers in Canada.

The goal of the program is to develop global relationships, facilitate the growth of participant companies and advance the financing, export and co-production of IP.

Using EAVE’s methodologies, producers – both with and without projects – will work in groups using the projects as case studies.

Participants will be divided into groups to maximize collaboration and growth, and relationship and network building with fellow participants, faculty and mentors.

Application deadline: Monday, November 22, 2021 at 5 p.m. ET


The National Screen Institute is committed to training participants from a diverse community of voices including Black, Indigenous, People of Colour. Additionally, the jury will give consideration to applicants who are women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning and two-spirit (LGBTQ2S+), people with disabilities, those outside large urban centres, those from regional and remote areas, and various religious groups.
