Manitoba Content Creators Development Accelerator

Story development and pitching training.

Program status:

Past program offered by the National Screen Institute


During this online workshop with Jan Miller, one of the top international development trainers and consultants in film and television, participants learned insider tips and got the tools needed to make their story idea sing and ready for pitching to an online forum at the end of training.

The accelerator was part of a series of distance education sessions created to provide up to eight Manitoba-based members and permits of IATSE 856; DGC Manitoba; ICG 669; ACTRA Manitoba, Winnipeg Indigenous Filmmakers Collective and NSI alumni with an opportunity to develop their story ideas while in isolation due to COVID-19.

It was the result of a partnership between Film Training Manitoba (FTM) and the National Screen Institute.
