I’m a big fan of the Canadian Film Centre.  It’s a great training ground for film, tv and new media professionals.  When writers just starting out ask me about a career path, I almost always suggest some training at the CFC.

As a resident in the Prime Time Television Program, you’ll write a helluva lot, get realistic story room training and meet and work with a wide range of industry professionals.  You’ll come out of the program with a great deal of knowledge about how the industry really truly works, several spec scripts, pitching experience and many contacts.

Ready to apply?  Good because the deadline for applying to Prime Time is Thursday, May 14th, 2009.  Check out the web site for deets or drop them an email at tv@cfccreates.com.

F.Y.I. On Wednesday, April 8th, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.fellow CFC alum Denis McGrath is running a “Prime Time Info Session and Deconstruction and Spec Writing Workshop” (maybe he’s rolling a seder into it as well).  It’s at the Spoke Club in Toronto.  If you’re interested, contact Valentina Puvtoska at the CFC (vpuvtoska@cfccreates.com).
