Training Opportunities for Producers and Screenwriters.
This coming June, the Island Media Arts Coop (IMAC) will be hosting the eleventh PEI Screenwriters’ Bootcamp, a professional development workshop series for emerging screenwriters and producers from Atlantic Canada. These writers and producers will participate in five days of intensive professional development and be part of networking activities with producers and broadcasters in search of their next big production of feature films, documentaries, web and television drama.
The organizers are excited to welcome for the first time Deb Patz, author of Production Management 101 to mentor emerging producers. Returning mentors Tom Shoebridge, Sharon Buckingham, and Hannah Cheesman will be working with screenwriters again this year. In total, there are four workshops on offer that cover writing a feature from an idea, writing a next draft for a feature, writing a dramatic series, and production management. As an added bonus, Jan Miller will work her magic with the participants, preparing them for pitching and moving their projects forward.
With the support of Telefilm Canada, Innovation PEI, the Independent Production Fund, the Harold Greenberg Fund, and the City of Charlottetown, IMAC is able to offer these workshops at no charge to the talented individuals invited to participate.
• Writers are required to submit an application that outlines their idea and showcases their writing abilities.
