All filmmakers who register and complete their film by the deadline will be screened locally in each participating province and territory, then the top 2 films selected from each province and territory will appear together on the big screen at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto in March 2022.

For filmmakers on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, CineVic is resurrecting the FILM SLAM! name from our time-crunch filmmaking challenges in the early 2000s.

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.
