The Yorkton Film Festival is now accepting applications for the 2024 YFF Mentorship Program supported by RBC Foundation.
The YFF Mentorship program supported by RBC Foundation is participant-driven program that connects emerging filmmakers with established industry professionals who can provide expert level advice and networking opportunities to help emerging talents in Canada’s creative industries.
“We are ecstatic to continue moving forward with RBC and the generous support they’ve provided to continue to deliver this program,” said YFF Executive Director Randy Goulden. “Being able to play a role in identifying and supporting emerging talent throughout our country has been such a rewarding experience, not only for our mentees, but for the mentors and for us as well.”
This a 46-hour mentorship and guidance program which brings together the participants with their mentor through in-person and digital channels.
"For many emerging filmmakers, securing access to networks, mentorship, resources and a platform for gaining exposure for their work can be challenging,” said Lori Chute, RBC Community Manager. “This is why the YFF Mentorship Program supported by RBC Foundation is an excellent opportunity for developing diverse talent and perspectives.”
The YFF Mentorship Program supported by RBC Foundation is a multi-year commitment, part of RBC's overall support of YFF over the years, investing in developing the next generation of Canada’s creative sector.
The deadline for applying for the 2024 Program is March 31, 2024. Selected applicants will be notified no later than April 19, and all successful applicants will have the opportunity to attend and take part in the 2024 Yorkton Film Festival.
