WIDC/WFG SHORT WORKS AWARD LAB SPRING 2018:
Women In the Director’s Chair (WIDC) is collaborating with the Winnipeg Film Group
to offer a new WIDC / WFG Short Works Award
for women interested in advancing their careers in directing screen fiction. This lab is designed to provide a prize package for up to 3 women directors including a tailored development offering with the goal of creating a short fiction work (2-3 minutes maximum), suitable as a stand alone piece for festival screenings
Vancouver based WIDC Producer/Mentor Carol Whiteman is a two-time Governor General’s Award Nominee and multidisciplinary for promoting women’s equality in Canada. She is here at the WFG for the next 12 days helping to mentor and train the three finalists: Rachel Beaulieu, Angela Froese & Shira Newman. Congrats! We are excited to help support your projects.
Thank you to our funders, partners and collaborators for their generous financial and in-kind support of this project!
