MENTORSHIP PARTNERSHIP

Film Training Manitoba’s mentorship program provides opportunities for on-the-job training for crew that are advancing to more senior job classifications. FTM will contract an established and experienced crew member to mentor an emerging department head and manager, equipping the mentee with the best practices in our industry.

The mentorship partnership can be arranged for pre-production, principle photography, post-production or a combination of the three.

CREW COURSE AND TRAVEL PROGRAM

The Crew Course and Travel Fund (CCTF) supports the professional development of crewmembers and industry professionals currently working in Manitoba’s film and television industry. Through the CCTF, Film Training Manitoba will provide financial assistance to cover the costs of attending a workshop or course not available in Manitoba. 

CAREER FOCUS CREW INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The Career Focus Program is an important part of Film Training Manitoba’s overall training strategy. FTM is committed to helping recent graduates in Manitoba gain on-the-job experience and apply the skills acquired through education to the local industry. The program is well known to employers in the industry and has a high impact on the development of entry-level workers.
