Calgary Economic Development, in partnership with Content Canada and Canada Consulate General of Canada, Los Angeles, and with funding from Western Economic Diversification, is proud to announce the launch of the Alberta Producer Accelerator (APA) Program to help deliver the projects of Alberta television and film producers to the global stage.  

>> The APA Program for the first cohort runs December 2020 through March 2021. <<



The APA Program will offer training, one-to-one mentorship, and access to key decision makers for up to ten selected finalists. The six-week curriculum is comprised of weekly mentorship sessions, industry expert-led online masterclasses and advisor check-ins, all of which culminates in vital one-on-one pitch opportunities with national and international decision makers.



The APA Program is open to producers with registered Alberta content who have worked in the industry for 3+ years, have a body of work and are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse environment. 



The deadline has passed for the first cohort.
