Business Affairs & Line Producing Career Accelerator Intensive – April 2021

An intensive career accelerator for Indigenous women content producers in the film, television and media space. Indigenous women in pursuit of careers in the film, television and media space experience disproportionate barriers to success. We provided Indigenous women with the tools, skills and resources they need to succeed in this field.

This project brought together 18 Indigenous women content producers working in the film, television and media space, living in GTA, for a four day virtual training program with a focus on Business Affairs. The group gathered via Zoom and worked with professional mentors and special guest speakers who will lead the participants through a variety of topics including: IP (intellectual property), Financing, Budgeting, Development and Tax Credits and Incorporating your Company.

The Business Affairs & Line Producing Career Accelerator Intensive was brought to you by Shine Network and The Fund for Gender Equality. The Fund for Gender Equality is supported by a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada, and the Equality Fund, with Support from the Government of Canada.
