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.
