Existing outside the commercial film industry, the only limit creative filmmakers at WFG have is their imaginations. We’re all weird — and we want to keep it that way. WFG is the place for you to learn, experiment, and grow.
The training you need from the filmmakers and artists who know
Learn from independent filmmakers about directing, scriptwriting, technical aspects of filmmaking and more. We offer many learning mediums such as master classes, workshops, curatorial essays, DVDs, books, panels, and Q&As.
Our learning opportunities are affordable and the best way to meet and engage with others in the filmmaking community.
Registration for all workshops is on a first pay, first serve basis. Payment in FULL is required to secure a space in all workshops. Enrollment is limited.
Q: I’m having trouble signing up for a workshop!
A: If you’re having trouble signing up for a workshop, please email email@example.com or call (204) 925-3456 (ext. 111) during our office hours. We can help!
Q: Can my child sign up for a workshop?
A: Unless specified otherwise, we generally like to keep our workshops ages 13+, or 16+ for more advanced topics. If you’re unsure, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Do I need to bring anything to my workshop?
A: Unless it says so on the workshop post, you usually don’t need to bring anything. However sometimes based on the subject matter, it can be good to bring a notebook and pen.
Q: What about lunch?
A: If a workshop goes over the lunch hour, you are responsible for your own lunch; whether that be going to a restaurant in the area, or packing your own lunch from home.
Q: Is there somewhere I can park my car during my workshop?
A: Unfortunately parking in our area can be a bit difficult. WFG does not have any of our own spots, but there are usually plenty of metered spots around, and there’s a paid parkade nearby as well.
Q: Can I have a discount on my workshop price?
A: If you get a General Membership, you typically get $15-$30 off your workshop registration fee. Other than that, WFG workshops are priced accordingly to ensure that instructors are paid fairly and we can provide any supplies needed.
Q: Do I need a membership to sign up for a workshop?
A: You do not need a membership to sign up for a workshop! A membership will simply give you a discount on your regrestration fee, but is not mandatory.
Q: Are there any prerequisites for this workshop?
A: Unless it says otherwise on the workshop description, there are usually no prerequisites for any of our workshops here at WFG.
Q: I’m signed up for a series workshop and I can’t attend one of the dates.
A: Generally, it is preferred that you attend all workshop dates you are signed up for. For special cases, please email email@example.com and we might be able to accommodate you depending on the circumstances.
Assistance and accommodations are available to participants with different disabilities. Please call or email us for more information.
