The Directors’ Lab is a professional development opportunity for six Indigenous directors or producers looking to transition into directing feature-length films. These business-orientated labs will include case studies, sessions on co-productions and networking opportunities.
Open to Indigenous, First Nations, Métis or Inuit applicants in Canada and the US.
Indigenous Screenwriting Shorts Lab
The Indigenous Screenwriting Shorts Lab is a six-month professional development program that will support six Indigenous creatives from Canada. Each participant will develop a short film script from concept/treatment to final draft.
Indigenous story editors will support the writers’ projects at each stage, providing feedback, advice and writing resources. Each participant will leave with a completed script and a professional pitch package.
Two of the selected short scripts will be granted $25K CAD for production at the end of the lab.
Open to First Nations, Métis or Inuit applicants in Canada.
