The goal of the Work Experience Program is to provide on-the-job training to both new and established technicians; to expand the number of skilled crew members working in the Manitoba film industry, and to address succession planning for production companies, and industry related organizations.
NOTE: Short films, student films, and commercials are not eligible for work experience programs. Work placements on unionized film productions will be given priority.
The work experience program includes:
• Career Focus Crew Internship Program
• Skills Upgrade Program
Film Training Manitoba delivers skill-based on the job training to new and existing crewmembers.
FTM works closely with the industry to identify skill gaps and training needs within the film community.
The training priorities for this fiscal year are outlined in the attached document.
Work Experience placements
Film Training Manitoba requires:
o Resumes and crew positions of the trainers
o Resumes of the trainees
Placements are assessed on the readiness of the trainee(s), the qualifications of the trainer and the quality of the training opportunity.
Work experience placements are training opportunities. No guarantees are made regarding future employment in the film industry.
Funding for work experience placements are generated through workshop revenue. As a result only a limited number of placements are available per quarter.
Film Training Manitoba reserves the right to withdraw from work placement negotiations if the production company is not able to meet the work experience criteria
