Film Apprenticeship Program

Applications are now open for the NWT’s first Film Apprenticeship Program!

The NWTPMA is pleased to partner with the Government of the Northwest Territories to offer film professionals in the NWT the opportunity to be able to hone their craft while working on large-scale productions both inside the NWT and across Canada.

The pilot phase of the program launched on October 1, 2018 and will place 4 NWT resident film professionals with mentors in their chosen field.

Successful applicants will be chosen through a combination of CV/resume, a written project proposal outlining their placement objectives and an interview process. The NWTPMA Board of Directors will serve as a selection jury for this process.

Each selected applicant will have travel, accommodation and daily expenses related to their placement covered up to a maximum of $5,000.

All applications will be reviewed on a first-come basis, so interested parties are encouraged to submit as soon as possible.


    • Open only to NWT residents
    • Active NWTPMA membership is required (register here)
    • Placement must be completed prior to March 31, 2019
