PSA: Halifax Black Film Festival – Call for applications!

We are putting together everything for the Halifax Black Film Festival for this year and we’re really excited about a new youth program we’re running this year. I thought you could pass this information along to Wayn and anyone else that might be able to spread the word.

The Fondation Fabienne Colas Foundation is launching a call for applications for its program “Youth and Diversity”, in collaboration with the Halifax Black Film Festival – HBFF !

This program offers professional mentor-ship in the audiovisual production of a short film with the theme of “Being Black in Halifax.” 5 young, promising filmmakers will be guided through the many steps in audiovisual production and will create a documentary short. Final work will be screened at a special event of the 3rd Halifax Black Film Festival.

The program addresses emerging creators between 18 and 30, who are from black communities and have a passion for cinema. Potential candidates have a dream to work in the audiovisual field but have not yet had the opportunity, due to social, economic and/or cultural reasons.

Here’s the link to our website with all the info. If there is any way you can help us spread the word, that would be awesome. 

The HBFF will be held March 1-3, 2019.
