Introduction to Production -- Program Application

Film Production -- Program Application

CEE Centre for Young Black Professionals (CEE) is partnering with DESTA Black Youth Network and Main Film on “Introduction to Production!”, a paid part-time training program for Black youth ages 18-35 in Montreal aimed at introducing participants to the world of film and TV production. 

The pilot program is set to run in the Fall of 2022. The purpose of the program is to reduce the barriers aspiring Black film & TV professionals face entering the production sector in Quebec by providing access to virtual and hands-on training and education as well as support with industry wayfinding and career planning. 

program will provide an orientation to the production process, production departments and career paths. While participants learn about the big picture, they will also receive hands-on training on the role of a production assistant. Training includes soft skills (interpersonal skills), technical skills, set etiquette and lingo, gear orientation, production knowledge and job search skills. Those who complete the training can apply to one of five work-training placement opportunities on TV and Film productions in Montreal!
