CFC Provides an Intensive Professional Experience for Creative and Entrepreneurial Talent

Our unique programs emphasize the importance of fusing artistic and creative considerations with the realities of the screen-based and digital industries. By facilitating the transformation of creative and entrepreneurial talent into full-fledged content professionals and flourishing companies, the CFC positions residents and participants for success in film, television, screen acting, screen composing and songwriting, and digital media.

Through intensive, practical and hands-on programs guided by experts and industry professionals, we encourage residents and participants to constantly challenge themselves, and/or their teams, both creatively and commercially.

Our track record is exemplary; more than 92 per cent of our residents go on to work in their respective disciplines within the film, television, music, screen acting and digital media communities. CFC’s connections within the industry offer residents and/or their company unparalleled opportunities to network, cultivate professional contacts, showcase their ideas, and become influential industry players.
