Four Every Story Filmmaker Lab Fellowships have also been announced, including the recently announced Every Story People’s Fellowship. Additionally, TIFF Filmmaker Lab provides 20 Canadian and international directors with an exceptional professional development experience at the Toronto International Film Festival and an introduction to the global community of filmmaking. Over a five-day period, participants have the opportunity to interact with and learn from internationally acclaimed mentors and programme governors including Ramin Bahrani, Deepa Mehta, and Roger Ross Williams. The participants will also be joined by guest speakers that include Official Selection filmmakers Sally El Hosaini, Nikyatu Jusu, Cristian Mungiu, and Clement Virgo. In addition to the programming, fellowships generously sponsored by Share Her Journey and For the Love of Film donors include accomodation, accreditation to the Festival and a travel allowance.
