An online session Wednesday, Feb. 16, will offer information on Telefilm Canada’s Talent to Watch program, which supports emerging filmmakers looking to finance the production stage of their first feature film projects.
Mike Stasko, an assistant professor in the Department of Communication, Media, and Film, will lead the event on Microsoft Teams for UWindsor alumni — especially those recent grads building their careers. It will run 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.; email Prof. Stasko for details and a link to the session: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Telefilm program is intended to support a diverse array of emerging talent, to discover and develop the next generation of Canadian filmmakers, and to allow them to establish their voices and sensibilities. It offers up to $250,000 for fiction feature films and $150,000 for feature length documentaries.
