Thank you to all who applied.
FilmPEI is excited to announce the 2023 iteration of the Film4Ward program, an incubator program for film production and skill capacity building for both emerging and professional filmmakers. Leveraging industry expertise across PEI and Canada, workshops, as well as mentoring & shadowing opportunities.
The Film4Ward program was designed to develop talent and content from emerging to professional 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 have calling card projects they can use to help express their knowledge, capabilities and skills, to help them move their career forward to larger budget projects.
