Film4Ward Program

2024 Film4Ward Training Program
Applications Are Now Open

FilmPEI is excited to announce the 2024 iteration of the Film4Ward Training Program. As an incubator program for film production and skill capacity building, we aim to open the industry up to beginners with little to no experience. Four projects will be chosen for the 2024 F4W Training Program. Each project will be working closely with FilmPEI and the F4W Industry Mentor for their project development, funding, workshops and training, pre-production, production, and post-production.

The Film4Ward program was designed to develop talent and grow the skills of emerging PEI filmmakers, and to grow their capacity to work on other film and television productions. Creating a short film is a necessary stepping stone in a filmmaker’s career.

Please note: Successful candidates (individuals or teams) from the 2022 and 2023 Film4Ward programs who had the opportunity to make their projects will NOT be eligible for the 2024 Film4Ward program.
