Call for applications for a film writing mentorship
Do you love Indigenous film, but you want to read more reviews and interviews by Indigenous writers? Have you thought of writing them yourself? Maybe writing for an online forum, starting a blog, or trying to get your reviews published in a magazine? Maybe you’re an aspiring writer who has lots of ideas but you need to boost your confidence to develop them and start writing. Maybe you already write but you could use some support to improve your writing and develop your ideas further.

This program offers one Indigenous student a 12-month mentorship to develop his or her writing about film with an aim to write and publish something on the 2018 Winda film festival.
