We are Creating Access and Inclusion.
The Reelworld Screen Institute provides year-round initiatives, programs, and events to foster professional development for our Canadian racially diverse talent, to deepen their artistic practice, and to strengthen this creative community and network.
We create more opportunities by focusing on the research, advocacy, policy, and infrastructure changes needed within our industry and government.
Reelworld Institute is working to increase the number of Canadian decision-makers who are Black, Indigenous, Asian, South Asian, or People of Colour. When we have real representation at high levels, we will be able to create a more level playing field.
Reelworld Training Lab presented by Amazon MGM Studios
The Reelworld Training Lab presented by Amazon MGM Studios is a new training program for both Canadian producers and writers. The program will offer training and upskilling opportunities to racially diverse and Indigenous talent in Canada, and will foster a pipeline of Canadian production talent and help support Amazon MGM Studios projects in Canada.
Reelworld x NABET Mentorship Program
Reelworld Screen Institute has partnered with NABET 700-M UNIFOR to launch a mentorship program to connect NABET members with emerging Black, Indigenous, South Asian, Asian and People of Colour technicians who are looking to build their network and gain one-on-one guidance from an experienced industry professional.
This 3-month mentorship program will provide one-on-one support to the mentees by connecting them with industry professionals in their area of interest. This is a great opportunity for crew and professionals in below-the-line roles to increase their skill set and knowledge.
