The film and television industry is growing, yet diversity behind the camera continues to be a problem. Employment opportunities exist to train people for high level artistic and technical jobs including cinematographers and camera assistants.
Barriers also exist for marginalized communities to have access to training opportunities. CSC is conducting an unprecedented initiative to remove barriers to employment in the film and television industry.
The bridge will be created by:
- Establishing relationships with community partners on the ground and working with underrepresented communities.
- Reaching out to those community partners in a respectful way with practical opportunities to access film and television
- Offer robust online content so people can supplement their learning in whatever part of the country they live
- Building ongoing relationships with community partners, industry stakeholders and government to make our programs sustainable
The CSC is on target to raising $3.75 million pledged over the next 3 years by the end of 2022. On November 7, Paul Bronfman, chair of that campaign announced at the official launch of the campaign that we’ve raised 1.97 million dollars, over half of our 3.75-million-dollar campaign goal.
