The Academy builds on our wildly successful Being Black in Canada’s emerging filmmaker Incubator program to develop a dedicated training and mentorship program that will target the intermediate, mid-career professional.
Three month intensives and longer
Our Accelerator Program will be an intensive, three-month program for Black Film Professionals where they will develop their industry skills and business acumen. Small virtual class sizes ensure participants will be provided a supportive safe space and instruction informed by their specific needs and experiences.

Resources and training developed specifically for Black women and LGBTQ2+ community members in the TV and film industry
