Our good friends over at the National Screen Institute (NSI) have partnered with CBC to deliver the CBC New Indigenous Voices program.
The program is a 14 week course for Indigenous Canadians aged 18-35 which exposes them to opportunities in film, TV and digital media.
Some experience is required. Here is the application criteria from the NSI website:
