Mentorship programs play a key role in WIFTV’s continual efforts to support the professional development of women in the Canadian screen-based media community. That’s why, once again, Women in Film and Television Vancouver is proud to partner with the Banff Media Festival for the WIFTV Banff World Media Festival Mentorship Program.
Successful applicants (mentees) are provided with:
- a festival pass to the Banff World Media Festival (June 11-14, 2017),
- a pre-festival consultation with an experienced television producer or development executive; and
- two supporting meetings a fellow WIFTV member, before and during the festival.
Going into their 38th year, the Banff World Media Festival is one of the world’s largest gatherings of entertainment and digital media executives, making it the ideal place to make new contacts, find production partners and green-light new projects. The event features in-depth spotlights on key international territories, pre-booked Face-to Face Meetings with industry decision makers, and unparalleled opportunities for networking with potential partners from across the globe.
We’re pleased to offer WIFTV members a discounted pass … and on top of that, we’ll send one exceptional writer, director, or producer to the festival with some well-deserved support.
