Canadian Film Centre

Founded by Governor-General Award recipient and Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Norman Jewison, the CFC is perpetually evolving and expanding to meet dynamic industry needs.

Originally opening its doors in 1988 as a film training centre, the CFC has progressively added new programs, initiatives and labs as they become relevant; growing from 6 initial staff running a solitary film program for 12 inaugural residents in 1988, to over 50 staff, running 8 program and 3 initiatives for more than 100 residents in 2006.

Eighteen years of collaboration with North America's top broadcasters, studios and other key organizations, has solidified the CFC as a vital partner in the growth and progression of the Canadian entertainment industry, worldwide.

The Film Program is a five-and-a-half month complete immersion in the art and craft of dramatic filmmaking for producers, editors, writers and directors. Filmmakers develop technical and collaborative skills, while refining and challenging their artistic expression in an intensely demanding, creative and professional environment. With a focus on entrepreneurial spirit, the program maintains a balance between the artistic and commercial aspects of the filmmaking industry, while nurturing originality and fostering creative risk-taking.
