VICE, Secret Location & William F. Whites joining the SJIWFF for the [Interactive] Incubator Project
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 14, 2015. St. John’s, NL
The [Interactive] Incubator Project is open for Submissions
Launched by the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival in 2014, the [Interactive] Incubator Project (IIP) is a call for proposals from Atlantic-Canadian female creators looking to develop their first web-based or interactive media project (web series, interactive documentary, etc.) With a focus on storytelling, the IIP serves as a way to connect these creators with the expertise to help develop, focus and network their projects.
The five chosen winners will be brought to Newfoundland for the annual St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (October 20-24, 2015) and given full access to the Festival screenings, VIP Galas and parties, plus they attend the [Interactive] Film Industry Forum– a series of professional development workshops and panels, to further their training.
They will be matched with leading industry experts from across Canada for one-on-one consultations and meetings to further strengthen their projects, including Nina Sudra from VICE Canada , a global youth media company and industry leader in producing and distributing the best online video content in the world; and Noora Abu Eitah from Secret Location, winner of a Digital Emmy® Award, a Gemini Award, and several marketing and Webby awards. Winners will also receive a $2000 voucher for film gear rental from William F. White International Inc.
Applicants must be residents of Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or New Brunswick. All applications must be postmarked or received by September 1, 2015.
