The E20 Program is Reelworld’s initiative to connect some of Canada’s most talented emerging diverse talent with industry executives and professionals within the Canadian entertainment industry. E20s are given the opportunity to network, learn, and pitch their projects to industry decision makers.
We are looking for 20 emerging content creators and filmmakers with projects in the pre-development or development phase, that have potential to inspire and entertain. Whether your project is a documentary, dramatic feature, web series, or comedy, we are looking for stories that explore important themes and issues in ways that entertain, spark conversation, and expand minds.
