Access BIPOC Producers Program, presented by EAVE and the National Screen Institute - Canada (NSI) ) in collaboration with Canada Media Fund (CMF) is a one-year training program consisting of three workshops, with the goal of empowering BIPOC producers in Canada to become distinct storytelling voices in the global marketplace.

The program will combine the long experience that EAVE has in international training and networking with a tailor-made approach for Canadian producers who identify as Black, Indigenous or a Person of Colour (BIPOC), and their project writers. The program is designed for up to 10 producers with projects in development (fiction features, documentaries and series) and their writers, plus up to 10 producers attending without a project.

The objective is to improve the participants’ skills in international coproduction, film finance and management, legal issues, marketing, packaging, festival and sales strategies as well as script development, allowing them to expand their careers and businesses internationally.

The language of the workshops is English.
