Writers and Directors: Shape Your Story with WarnerMedia
January 18, 2022
Day 1 of 3: With the latest call for WarnerMedia Access Canada’s writers and directors programs closed, this conversation will tackle what being in a talent initiative means. How does opportunity through these programs materialize?
 Joined by writers JP Larocque and Christine Rodriquez (from year one of the WMxCanadian Academy writers’ program) and WM Executive Yvette Urbina, moderated by WM Access Canada Program Director Melanie Nepinak Hadley, we will discuss what is at stake for the Canadian talent in these programs and beyond. How can they help shape your story and the story of what it means to be a Canadian writer or director?
Then stay for a meet-and-greet to meet up with each of the panel participants personally and connect with the rest of the WM Access Canada team, including Luisa Alvarez Restrepo who leads initiatives for filmmakers through Festivals programs.
WarnerMedia Access Canada presents... A Futurespective: Opportunities for You in 2022 is a three-day event series featuring panel discussions with industry leaders and an exclusive opportunity to connect directly with the WarnerMediaAccess Canada (WMAC) team, industry partners, and current programme participants in a virtual chatroom.
If this panel piques your interest, there are two other panels you can join and two other meet-and-greets you can be a part of.
