Upcoming Events

Development & Distribution w/ Jason Karman

4 December 2021

You have a great story. How do you develop it? And once it’s finished, how do you find your audience? Relationship building remains the heart of excellent film producing; one fosters trust and creates opportunity while advancing stories. In Canada, making a film ethically matters, and representation is a goal worth striving for. Social media has become the primary tool for finding information and connecting people. No longer does one need to have a great story, but the question now shifts to why are you the right person to tell this story? This workshop will help emerging writer-directors interested in being auteurs produce their stories and manage future relationships.
