WIFTV VIFF SHORT FILM MENTORSHIP OPPORTUNITY

posted on 11:06 AM, August 8, 2014

This mentorship gives a WIFTV director member with a short film in development the opportunity to participate in VIFF’s Mentorship Program, a new initiative where short filmmakers, in the early stages of their careers, are provided with invaluable networking opportunities at the Festival and Conference. The goal of the program is to introduce emerging filmmakers to a solid peer network and directly support their creative processes. The initiative will also provide support, counsel and inspiration to the next generation of filmmakers by providing them with a venue to showcase their talent, an opportunity to network and collaborate with peers plus the added benefit of participating in the knowledge-building aesthetic experience offered by film festivals.

All mentees will receive the following benefits:

  • complimentary pass to VIFF
  • complimentary pass to VIFF Industry Conference
  • access to Hospitality Suite
  • access to Industry Networking Receptions
  • participation in a roundtable discussion with a feature filmmaker from VIFFs #mustseebc 2013 campaign
  • mentees are encouraged to be active on social media throughout the Festival and Conference
