Call for Applications: Workshop Facilitators and Guests

REEL CANADA is hiring a national roster of film industry professionals for part-time contracts, to participate as guests and moderators for our Reel Opportunities programme.

REEL CANADA is a charitable not-for-profit whose mission is to introduce youth to Canadian film and engage them in a conversation about identity and culture. The Reel Opportunities programme offers online workshops designed to expose young people to the hundreds of career opportunities in the Canadian film industry. The workshops will feature film industry guest speakers talking about their own experiences. The workshops will also be led by facilitators who will provide an overview of the career paths and moderate the live conversations with students.

To get a sense of the programme, you can look at this English-language highlight reel from our last season: reelcanada.ca/reel-opportunities-promo

We are looking for candidates from all areas of production and post-production, with a particular focus on below-the-line positions. All successful applicants must have access to reliable high speed internet and be able to participate in live video-conferencing via Zoom, Google Meet or similar online platforms. 

These positions are funded by Economic and Social Development Canada under the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy and therefore have strict qualifying criteria: **All applicants must be 30 years of age or younger **(no exceptions will be made).

REEL CANADA is actively seeking candidates with diverse identities and lived experiences. We encourage those who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, people of colour, or people with a disability to apply. We encourage applicants from all regions of Canada to apply, especially if they have connections to their local or provincial film industries within their provinces or territories.
