The Yorkton Film Festival has announced the candidates for the 2021 RBC Mentorship Program have been selected.
The RBC Mentorship program is participant-driven program that connects emerging filmmakers with established industry professionals who can provide expert level advice and networking opportunities to help emerging talents in Canada’s film industry.
“A Canada-wide call for applications went out in February, and we received many very strong applications from filmmakers who were interested in taking part in this year’s program,” said YFF Executive Director Randy Goulden. “We are very excited to deliver this program for another year, and I cannot thank the RBC enough for their commitment to helping us foster the next great generation of Canadian film talent.”
“When we support aspiring filmmakers we are investing in an industry, creative expression, and the vibrancy of our communities,” shares RBC Community Manager Trevor McLachlan. “That is why RBC Foundation is proud to support the inspiring work of the Yorkton Film Festival, the 2021 RBC Mentorship Program, and emerging artists across Canada.”
