Anciff Mentorship



A mentorship program that prepares a director’s film program for market during ANCIFF.

A development program between Women in Film and Television and Ananse cinema International Film Festival (ANCIFF), the Market Preparation Mentorship program is being offered to a selected recipient, who is a member of Anciff and is interested in receiving hands on training and advice from established film professionals in “Market Preparation for Long Form Narrative or Limited Series”.

The goal of the mentorship will be to provide the recipient with experience in preparing their project pitch for presentation to potential collaborators, funders and partners. The recipient will feel more confident and informed in regards to the preparation required and how to best present their ideas. The recipient will receive valuable insight into building their career and may maintain a relationship with their mentor past the Festival period.

Prior to the Festival, the mentored will participate in several personal coaching sessions with a local Executive Director/Producer/Marketing Executive mentor personally chosen by the Anciff Film Festival’s Director of Programming. These private instruction sessions will cover several topics to prepare the mentored to pitch their project(s) during the 1+1 on meetings during the 2020 Anciff Summit.

ANCIFF is an internationally affiliated non-profit society committed to advancing and celebrating women in screen-based media.
