The Winnipeg Film Group's Mosaic Women's Film Project is a special production support and film mentorship program to assist two women of Aboriginal or diverse cultural backgrounds* to produce a first or second independent short film or video. There are TWO awards available.

This award includes $1,250 to support living expenses over the five-month project period, $2,500 in cash to be used to support development and production costs, $2,000 in services from the Winnipeg Film Group (workshops / training, equipment, cameras, studio rentals, etc.) and the assistance of a mentor.

This fund supports filmmakers who intend to work in narrative, experimental or documentary, or hybrid / cross-genre work in film or video. The award funding and timeframe is ideal to support a film or video that is 3-5 minutes in length.

* For the purposes of this program, Aboriginal peoples include Status, Non-Status, Métis and Inuit people. Diverse cultural background refers to persons of African, Asian, Latin American or Middle Eastern origin.


The Winnipeg Film Group acknowledges the generous support of The Winnipeg Foundation towards the Mosaic Women's Film Project.
