The Slaight Music Residency - Overview

Click on the lookbook below to meet the 2012 residents:

The Slaight Music Residency will encourage a complete integration of music creators into the onscreen process while offering unique business opportunities to increase the use of Canadian music onscreen.

Over the last 25 years, CFC has trained and launched some of Canada’s most exciting and prolific storytellers, while fostering strong relationships and providing many showcase opportunities for our music community.

As we look to strengthen our relationship with onscreen talent, we recognize the need within our industry for more in depth, professional onscreen musical training that would adopt the same approach to nurturing talent that is the hallmark of CFC’s programs.

The Slaight Music Residency is aimed at composers and songwriters looking to break into the onscreen world, and will support musical artists (composers & songwriters) each session. 

The Slaight Music Residency will focus on:

  • Increasing their onscreen musical knowledge & skills
  • Fostering a deeper appreciation of the rich and important relationship of music to film and television among the next generation of onscreen creators
  • Expanding their professional network
  • Positioning them for ongoing work within the onscreen industries
  • Building opportunities to showcase their talent

The Slaight Music Residency will open doors wherever and whenever possible - with the end game being to increase sustainable work for our Canadian composers and songwriters within the onscreen industry.
