EAVE on Demand Access Program, presented by the National Screen Institute - Canada (NSI) with support from presenting partner 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 18 producers with projects in development (fiction features, documentaries and series) and their writers, plus up to 15 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 languages of the workshop will be English and French.

The applications are open until Monday November 22, 2021 through National Screen Institute:
