Canadian Aboriginal writers / filmmakers are invited to apply to the Whistler Film Festival’s Aboriginal Filmmaker Fellowship, in a creative and business immersion experience to be held in Whistler from December 6 to 7, 2013.
Designed to advance Canadian Aboriginal creative talent, this program focuses on strengthening short script projects by facilitating feedback by a group of mentors who are successful, well-respected Aboriginal members of the Canadian film community.
Up to four Aboriginal applicants from British Columbia will be invited to participate in the 2013 Aboriginal Filmmaker Fellowship.
What is the Aboriginal Filmmaker Fellowship?
Imagine an afternoon spent meeting and learning in the stunning Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre located in Whistler, North America’s top mountain resort, while key industry experts aim to help guide you and your short script in the right direction.
Filmmakers will receive individual and project specific feedback through a series of one-on-one sessions with Mentors, as well as a group session in order to strengthen their project. Feedback will include everything from where to take their script, to what changes the project may require in order to move it to the next level.
Filmmakers will also explore their own creative take on their project and develop skills and a process for evaluating, developing, and implementing their material to reflect these ideas.
Participants will also have access to the full day ShortWork Lab on December 7, which includes panel discussions on the world of short filmmaking, the MPPIA Short Film Pitch and the ShortWork Showcase screening and reception.
Application Deadline: November 1, 2013
