Herland Video Production Workshop for Women

A Partnership with TELUS Optik Local, Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers & Spring Street Films

DEADLINE: October 22nd, 2015

The Herland Video Production Workshop gives 8 emerging women filmmakers the opportunity

to pursue their creative vision, and tell a personal story with a short film. Over several months,

participants will develop their skills and expertise by immersing themselves into every aspect of

the filmmaking process. Established industry mentors will guide participants through story

development, screenwriting, camera operation, lighting, directing, editing and proposal writing,

in order to complete a 3-5 minute film, which will be screened to a public audience in March


All workshops are held on weekends during November 2015 at The Calgary Society of

Independent Filmmakers. Shooting will be between December and January, and the final project

will be complete by March 15th, 2016.


Applicants are asked to submit:

• A one-page concept for a 3-5 minute video that is based on a personal story.

• A statement detailing how the workshop will aid in their artistic growth.

• A CV or resume.

• Must be 19 years old or older.
