A five-month creative and business immersion program focused on strengthening and advancing short script projects for up to six emerging Indigenous Canadian filmmakers and content creators.
The WFF Indigenous Filmmaker Fellowship (IFF) supports up to six Indigenous Canadian creators with short-form film concepts or web series in development and at the script stage. Content in all genres can be submitted for consideration.
This creative and business immersion experience will take place online over five months beginning in November with workshops and meetings leading up to participation in the Whistler Film Festival and Content Summit, currently scheduled from December 2 to 6, 2020. The program continues with three months of project mentorship and online workshop sessions until March 2021.
Fellowship recipients receive high level of strategic advice and feedback on their scripts and projects from established content creators, producers and industry professionals with a focus on creative development, marketing and distribution. Scheduled market meetings during the Content Summit are also included.
