About

 

Recognizing that mentorship is one of the most sure-fire and supportive opportunities to move ahead in one’s career, WIFT-AT is thrilled to introduce the WIFT-AT Mentor Match Program. This initiative will provide members at different levels of experience, the formalized opportunity to learn from, guide, and support each other through a series of focussed one-on-one sessions over a six-month period.

  • Feedback on a specific project at both the development and final cut stage

  • A pathway to develop writing, directing and crew skills

  • Identification of which skills are transferable to other roles in the industry

  • Guidance on where to source training and potential funding support

  • Direction on putting together a production team

  • Guidance on when and how to pitch broadcasters directly

  • Insights on the value of attending international festivals
