Black Ink
MEntorship program - in film production

Black Wealth Media, in association with Black on Black Films, offers 40 Afro-descendant emerging artists the opportunity to make and promote Afrocentric short films under the guidance of film and media professionals. The support will be a combination of master classes in group settings and practical work, one on one.

The chosen emerging artists will participate in training workshops during which they will acquire more than the basics of the eligible disciplines. Throughout the 3 to 5 months (part-time) of the program, they will be accompanied by professionals and will have access to various tools to produce films, host them on an attractive site and promote them nationally.

*This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
