Women in Film and Television Atlantic (WIFT-AT) invites you to join us for a special, one-day workshop with writer, director and producer Latonia Hartery. In this workshop, Producing Your Own Work, Latonia will cover the producing process for short, and feature-length, documentaries and live-action films, and how to achieve the balance of simultaneously producing and directing. The workshop covers tips and guidance on creation, budgets, financing, and production in Canada and abroad. A portion of the day will also be devoted to learning about producing films in, and with, Indigenous communities.
