Program history

In 2021, the National Screen Institute partnered with Creative PEI and Film PEI to pilot the online program NSI Market-Ready Producers – PEI Edition for five PEI producers to develop essential producing skills and prepare a pitch package for a project they were developing.

The program included pitch consultations, project workshopping and mentorship from national industry professionals. After completing the program, participants qualified for the Pitch for Your Life competition at the 2021 PEI Screenwriters Bootcamp. Susan Rodgers won the competition and received $15K towards a proof of concept.
