Artist-in-Residence Film Student Program

Fostering young, up-coming talent is an important part of building community. The aim of the Film Student Program is to support local film schools and their students and give them an opportunity to use their full skillset and creativity. We are interested in featuring students' work on our visual platforms: website, online proposals, and social media. Any content produced may be featured in current campaigns thereby helping students build their portfolios.

Applications are now closed. Stay tuned for more opportunities.
