Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to work in film, theatre or television? Have you wondered what careers are available and what it takes to get a job?

The film industry is a profession that most people automatically write off as impossible to get into. “Good luck with that,” people will say with a smirk when you tell them of your interest. It seems like one of those careers where “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” and you don’t know anyone.

It’s true that creative professions are tough to get into. Unlike more business-minded fields, like accountants or lawyers (who know exactly what they have to do to be successful), the film industry has absolutely no guarantees and no clear checklist to victory. Film professionals are completely on their own when finding a path to success and it can be very intimidating, especially since no two career paths are alike.

The workshop will guide you through the maze of information regarding jobs and careers to be found in film production and specifically the Winnipeg film scene. You could spend weeks or months gathering and researching this information on your own, this workshop will provide you with a clear picture of the industry. Plus, this will be your opportunity to ask questions you’ve always wanted to know about the inner workings of the business.
