BLACK, INDIGENOUS AND PEOPLE OF COLOUR IN TV AND FILM
WHO WE ARE
BIPOC TV & Film is a grassroots organization and collective of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in Canada's TV and film industry. From writers, directors, producers and actors to editors, crew members and executives, our members are a mix of emerging, mid-level and established industry professionals. BIPOC TV & Film is dedicated to increasing the representation of BIPOC both in front and behind the camera.
BIPOC was founded in 2012 as Indigenous & Creatives of Colour in TV & Film by Writer/Director Nathalie Younglai, who saw a need to form a community for others like her, who were also feeling isolated by the overall lack of representation of BIPOC in the industry. This collective is the only intersectional organization in Canada dedicated to providing safe spaces for all Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in the industry.
BIPOC TV & Film hosts a series of panels, Q&A sessions, workshops, networking events and provides opportunities to secure employment in the television and film industry, specifically targeted to BIPOC. We also hold occasional events throughout the year that are open to allies, as we believe the support of allies is integral to creating a welcoming industry for BIPOC.
YOUTH OF COLOUR INITIATIVES
BIPOC TV & Film believes in the need to instill and encourage our youth to see themselves as part of the industry, and to believe that a dream of working in TV and film is a viable and attainable career. We partner with leading industry professionals to create workshops, internships, and skill training programs for youth of colour who wish to pursue opportunities in the film industry. With help from various organizations, the BIPOC TV & Film Team is currently working to design and deliver a program in the GTA. Please see our workshops and social channels for the latest announcements.
BIPOC TV & FILM appreciates our members and volunteers who dedicate their time to ensure the success of our events, workshops and panels.
Please email us to inquire about volunteer opportunities.
