OSM member and NSI Aboriginal training programs advisor Lisa Meeches and NSI Aboriginal Documentary co-manager Ursula Lawson were on Streetz FM discussing the NSI Aboriginal Documentary training course. Deadline to apply is November 4th.
NSI Aboriginal Documentary is a development launch pad for producer/director teams looking to produce a short documentary. Teams are paired with an industry mentor to help with the final development and production of a 10 minute documentary.
The course starts with a two-week bootcamp in Winnipeg. Travel and accommodation is paid for by NSI. Teams receive a cash award of up to $16,000 to put towards production of their documentary and attend the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto.
