CFC PROVIDES IMMERSIVE PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCES FOR CREATIVE AND ENTREPRENEURIAL TALENT

Our slate of programs fuse the unique needs and considerations of Canadian creative and entrepreneurial talent with the realities of the rapidly evolving screen-based and digital industries. CFC programs are focused on expanding skills, community and creative/professional opportunities. They facilitate the transformation of creative and entrepreneurial talent into impactful creators who are leaders in the screen industry and lead flourishing companies.

These intensive, hands-on programs are guided by experts and industry professionals. They encourage residents/participants to continually challenge themselves, and/or their teams, both creatively and commercially.

Our track record is exemplary; more than 92 per cent of our residents go on to work in their respective disciplines within the film, television, music, screen acting and digital media communities. Alumni of our programs leave the CFC with an impressive portfolio of materials, numerous industry connections, and the expertise necessary to become influential members of the screen industry, build their business(es) and cultivate long and meaningful careers.
