Scale Up Immersive

The Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab (CFC Media Lab) and OYA Black Arts Coalition (OBAC) have teamed up to deliver a new accelerator to increase the capacity of Black content creators and/or producers working in the immersive media space.

Scale Up Immersive is a three-month immersive accelerator lab that will provide 10 founders of Black-owned content creation companies per year - for a total of 30 founders over three years - with industry expert consultations, targeted and intensive workshops and case studies, hands-on mentorship and networking opportunities, as well as a rapid prototyping component that includes access to state-of-the-art immersive media production facilities and technologies.

Participants will gain a better understanding of:

  • the immersive media industry and landscape
  • business and financial structuring
  • workflow and integration into storytelling
  • virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) or mixed/extended reality (XR), by building a working prototype

Application deadline: December 23, 2021
