FILM MARKET PREPARATION MENTORSHIP

Between Whistler Film Festival & WIFTV 

The WIFTV Whistler Film Festival Mentorship gives one Executive, Professional or Associate member of WIFTV (producer, director or writer) the invaluable opportunity to attend the Whistler Film Festival, December 4 to 8, 2013 in Whistler, British Columbia. The participant will receive a WFF Premium Industry Pass as well as a pre-festival consultation with an experienced film professional. The recipient is responsible for booking all travel arrangements but will have access to preferred accommodation rates.

Topics for personalized coaching include:

  • Creating a one sheet
  • Who is buying what
  • Who to target with your project
  • How to add cache and marketable elements to your project
  • How to build an audience through guerilla and grassroots marketing before you shoot

Following the personalized coaching sessions, the mentored will attended three to four hand chosen 1+1 meetings with WFF Summit guests to pitch their project.  It is expected that the mentored will enhance their experience by engaging in both the Festival and WIFTV’s social media channels by blogging and tweeting.
