What is NSI’s Drama Prize program?

An informal information session with filmmaker & program adviser, E. Jane Thompson

NSI Drama Prize is a market-driven short film training program for emerging Canadian filmmakers. Up to four teams are selected each year. The program is comprised of three phases: training; assignment; and production. It features intensive writer, director and producer training sessions. Following training, an assignment is tailored to each team. After evaluation of the assignment, successful teams receive $10,000 in cash and $30,000 in services to produce a quality short (under 10 minutes) film under the guidance and mentorship of senior industry professionals.

Find out everything you want to know about the program in this informal session.

I hope all eligible individuals will take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
