Black Youth Filmmaking Fellowship Program
This FREE summer program is designed as an opportunity for Ottawa-based Black Youth ages 16-25 to learn fundamental knowledge, build skills and gain experience towards building a successful career in the film, media and TV industries
Every Sunday from July 17th-Aug 30th 2022, the program will provide hands-on curated workshops and masterclasses from industry professionals, access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment at Lenz Studio, and opportunities to network and build relationships with industry members. The program will culminate in the production of a short film addressing a social issue in the city of Ottawa, and a commercial for an Ottawa-based Non-profit organization written and directed by cohort participants. Participants will be key players in the production of these films alongside mentors in specific departments.
