VIFF 2019 Mentorship Program Application

The VIFF Mentorship Program is designed to open doors and eliminate barriers for up-and-coming filmmakers to experience an International film festival first-hand and to build relationships with peers and mentors from Vancouver and beyond. Ideal candidates are in the early stages of their filmmaking career. VIFF is committed to offering opportunities to those who are often under- or misrepresented in the film industry and beyond.

Applications close on Friday August 16th 2019 at 12:00 PM (noon) PST.

After completing this form, you will receive an email confirming that it has been received, and requesting your C.V.
