Reel Opportunities Training Programme

Are you a teacher with a budding director in your class? Maybe you’re a student with a knack for make-up design? Or a future props builder? Or just someone who loves film, but doesn’t know where they fit? We’ve got the programme for you!

We’re excited to announce our new in-person, extended “boot camps” offering hands-on experience in the film industry. Presented as phase 2 of the Reel Opportunities programme, in partnership with various film industry and educational institutions nationwide, this training series will help young people develop the real skills needed to excel in the ever-growing Canadian film and television industry.

Not only are these boot camps free of charge, but there will even be a modest stipend for participating, and some financial support for those who may need travel and accommodation.

Who is eligible?

The Reel Opportunities training workshops are open to those 18 and up as of September 30, 2022, we are actively seeking folks with diverse identities and lived experiences.

Our training workshops are expected to launch in the following cities (subject to change):

  • Vancouver, BC
  • Calgary, AB
  • Regina, SK
  • Winnipeg, MB
  • Sudbury and/or North Bay, ON
  • Montreal, QC
  • St. John’s, NL
