Lights, Camera, Action

Since 2007, we have trained, placed and kept talented youth in the exciting world of film, television, journalism, photography and new media.

WHAT WE DO

POV programming combines hands-on-technical training, one-to-one mentorship opportunities, and social skills development for the next generation of diverse filmmakers and content creators.
Working with our network of industry partners and employers, we then connect young creatives ages 18-25 with internships and job opportunities across the content production sector. Our industry-led training programs educate emerging filmmakers and creatives through a rigorous process that prepares them for successful entry into the content creation industry.
Upon leaving our programs, POV continues offering support to our alumni and broader community through our digital platforms including POVLabs, POV Talks, and POV Screens.

POV gave me the space to experiment, to fail, to learn from those experiences and to keep moving forward. It was a huge turnaround for me.

Coming from an immigrant family, and living in low-income housing, entering into an industry where you need money to get money was never an option. POV has opened my eyes to the options that someone like me never thought they had.

POV believes that working in the TV & Film production industry should not be a privilege afforded only to those with the means, resources and networks to break in. Since 2007, we have been levelling the field for creative youth from underrepresented communities across the GTA through training, mentorship, and by catalyzing sustainable collaborations that lead to meaningful careers in content production
