Tuesday, September 15 was the official launch of the Leadership and Team Management Training Program for Women Artists in Visual Effects and Animation!

Twenty-five women from 20 different studios will take part in this 6-week training program.

Developed in collaboration with l'École NAD-UQAC as part of the Release Your Creativity project, this program is made possible thanks to the financial support of the City of Montreal, as well as our partners Caribara, DNEG, Framestore, Method Studios, Reel FX and Technicolor (through its 3 brands Mikros, MPC and Mr X). Its goal is to increase the number of women artists in leadership positions, which represented only 13% of the industry in 2019 according to statistics collected by the QFTC.Thank you to all our partners!

About the project Release your creativity: Developed in collaboration with Access:VFX Montreal, CyberCap and the École des arts numériques, de l'animation et du design - NAD-UQAC, the project Release your creativity aims to develop innovative and inclusive solutions to the shortage of skilled labour. It is supported by Caribara, DNEG, Framestore, Method Studios, Reel FX and Technicolor studios (including its three brands Mikros, MPC and Mr X). The two-year program is divided into three components: a leadership and team management training program for women, a mentoring program for young graduates and the organization of activities aimed at inclusion and well-being in the workplace.
