The 2023 Producers Accelerator Program

The Reelworld Producer Accelerator Program is a year-long curriculum that provides support to the 2022 producers to continue to develop their projects optioned last year. The 2022 Reelworld Producers went through an intensive 12-month program - meeting with over 40 mentors, attending Banff for pitches and networking, and TIFF so they could broaden their circle of contacts. With many receiving Letters of interest to access development funds, Reelworld will continue to support their process.
