Congratulations to these talented NSI grads chosen for the first female director apprenticeship run by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.

Leah Johnston (NSI Drama Prize), JJ Neepin (NSI IndigiDocs) and Anna Cooley (STORYHIVE) are three of six participants starting the Academy Apprenticeship for Women Directors this month.

The program provides intensive professional development to emerging female content creators by pairing each apprentice with an established director currently working on a project.
