Northern Canada Producer Accelerator Program

The NWTPMA, in partnership with Screen Production Yukon Association (SPYA), Yukon Media Development (YMD), and the Northwest Territories Film Commission (NWTFC) is pleased to share with its members the launch of the Northern Canada Producer Accelerator Program (NCPA). Applications are open from March 10th-31st 2022

Ten finalists from the Northwest Territories and Yukon Territory will be selected to participate in the program.

The goal of the NCPA is to advance projects from Canada’s northern content creators, and ultimately bring their projects to the market through one-to-one mentorship with industry experts, a comprehensive educational curriculum and master classes, and customized feedback to ensure skill enhancement over the duration of the program.

The NCPA is open to producers with a registered business in the Yukon or Northwest Territories, and who are actively engaged in a current project. Special consideration will be given to scripted projects and Indigenous creators, though all projects and creators will be considered and are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must be committed to prioritizing the on-line courses, meetings and assignments within their schedules. The time commitment will be approximately 2-3 hours of classes each week as well as assignments during the core curriculum. All Applicants must also be committed to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion espoused by this program.

Applicants must be either a current member of NWTPMA or be willing to become members prior to the start of the program.

The NCPA is supported by six national Canadian broadcasters and funders: APTN, Bell Media, Blue Ant Media, CBC, Corus Entertainment, and Rogers Group of Funds, all of whom are co-sponsors of the first cohort. The program is being produced by Access Canada.
