The Reelworld Producers Program, presented by Bell Media, supports the development of Canadian producers who identify as Black, Indigenous, Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern and Latin American.
Those selected for the program will be immersed in the business side of the Canadian entertainment industry. In this one year program, producer trainees will choose a project and mentor under key professionals to learn valuable skills such as creating a corporation, retaining intellectual property rights, choosing and optioning scripts, creating deal memos, choosing key creatives, casting directors, and more. Producer trainees will work with mentors, be introduced to key industry professionals, and have the chance to pitch their chosen project and get it into development.
We are looking for 6-10 aspiring producers who really want to focus on the art of producing. If chosen, Bell Media will be taking an active interest in your project and your development. For filmmakers interested more in acting, writing or directing, please see for our other initiatives.
Applications will close December 4th, 2020, successful applicants will be notified by December 21st, 2020.
The program will start in January, 2021 and continue through to December, 2021. Applicants will need to be prepared to commit 1-2 evenings a week and occasional weekends.
