Project Lab

Project Lab

Deadline for applications was March 17, 2017. An announcement on successful submissions will be made soon. Please check back for updates.

Project Lab is a programming initiative intended to launch original Alberta voices into the marketplace, supporting the delivery of compelling Alberta stories for immediate distribution with the potential to be further commercialized. 

Project Lab will select, sponsor and resource two projects per year from an emerging filmmaker through venue, financial talent, crew support, equipment services contributions and in-kind resources.  This program will engage seasoned Alberta producers, storytellers and others who will use their skill sets to train and mentor new talent. 

Project Lab will support two Alberta storytellers in a concept–to-market experience to produce two finished Alberta-made films or other screen industry projects that that can be distributed through a variety of platforms. Directors selected will develop skills in articulating and realizing creative vision, resource management, marketing and audience engagement strategies, accelerating production and delivering content.
