Canada’s largest Mentorship & Training Program for Black Filmmakers
Part of the Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth and Diversity Program, Being Black in Canada was created to make up for the blatant lack of Black People in front and behind the camera in Canada. It gives a voice and a platform to creators who would not otherwise be seen or heard. In 2019, the program enabled 15 young Black Filmmakers (from Montreal, Toronto & Halifax), to create 15 shorts docs, tour festivals and lastly, see their films broadcast on National Television

Being Black in Canada represents Canada’s largest mentorship, training, and creation program to be entirely dedicated to Black filmmakers. This important initiative, created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth and Diversity Program, aims to train, mentor and empower the next generation of Black Filmmakers in Cinema and Television.
In 2019, the program enabled 15 young Black Filmmakers (from Montreal, Toronto & Halifax), aged 18 to 30, to create 15 documentary shorts of approximately 10 minutes each. The 15 films have been presented at the Montreal International Black Film Festival, the Toronto Black Film Festival, the Halifax Black Film Festival and others. Then, the 2019 films will be screened on CBC (Toronto & Halifax), Tele-Quebec (Montreal), TFO (Toronto).
