FilmPEI is excited to announce the 2019/20 iteration of the Film 4Ward program, an incubator program for film production and skill capacity building for both emerging and mid-career filmmakers.  Leveraging industry expertise across PEI and Canada, participants will be trained by industry professionals through a series of workshops and job shadowing opportunities. Four filmmaking teams will be chosen in a juried process and given funding and support to complete their films.

The Film 4Ward program was designed to develop talent and content from emerging to mid-career PEI filmmakers to make them more competitive at a national and international level and forward the creative careers of these filmmakers in a meaningful and strategic way. From this program, creators will have calling card films they can use to enter international festival circuit/digital distribution and help them move their career forward to larger budget projects including feature films.

The  Film 4Ward  winter workshops will be announced on an on going basis.
