Mentoring and training continues to be important now and in the future
Back in March, thanks to donations from two generous supporters, NSI launched a matching donor campaign to coincide with the start of training for NSI Totally Television and NSI IndigiDocs students. But then COVID-19 hit so we made the decision to pause our call-to-action due to the financial impact on so many within our community.
But that meant we never got a chance to shine the spotlight on some of the amazing donors who contributed to the campaign in its early days and properly acknowledge their support and generosity.
So we’re picking up where we left off and, as a show of gratitude, want to introduce you to some of those donors and send our heart-felt thanks to those who continue to make monthly donations in support of NSI storytellers. We couldn’t do it without you.
One of the special people who contributed to our matching donor campaign was Winnipeg producer Rhonda Baker.
Why do NSI students and alumni matter to you?
NSI is an amazing training ground for producers, writers and directors. Looking at the list of filmmakers that have been supported by NSI is like looking at a list of Canada’s finest emerging and established creators. Mentoring and training continues to be important now and in the future.
What would you tell someone thinking about donating to NSI?
NSI is a first class institute developing Canadian content creators. Donations from friends and colleagues will allow NSI to continue to provide mentoring, training and support to our future filmmakers.
We thank you Rhonda! Together with all of NSI’s generous supporters, you helped make a big difference to the lives of those who trained through NSI.
