CINEPLEX ENTERTAINMENT FILM PROGRAM
The Cineplex Entertainment Film Program is a five-and-a-half month complete immersion in the art and business of dramatic filmmaking for directors, producers, writers and editors. Filmmakers develop their technical, collaborative and business skills, while developing project slates and refining 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.
Each year, internationally recognized storytellers and industry professionals join us to inspire our filmmakers and lead hands-on workshops. In 2010, over 250 guests joined us in the five and a half months, including Edward Norton, William Goldman, Christine Vachon, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Petrie, Paul Haggis, Rodney Charters, John Hamburg, Eugene Levy, Joe Medjuk, Charles Wessler, Francois Girard and many, many more.
See what our alumni and faculty have to say about their experiences in the Directors' Lab, Producers' Lab, Writers' Lab, and Editors' Lab.
