Emma Zinck, a 2nd-year film student at Queen’s University has been accepted into the Creative Minds at Cannes Filmmaker Institute program this May. Help her get to France to develop her skills and learn from industry professionals! More ...

An Opportunity... and a Challenge

When Emma Zinck checked her email one rainy afternoon last November, she received a huge surprise: her application to participate in the prestigious Creative Minds Filmmaker Institute in Cannes in May was successful! The nineteen-year-old Island film student, currently in her second year at Queen’s University, had been invited to join a select group of young filmmakers from around the world to meet at the Cannes Film Festival in France in order to showcase their work while learning from professionals how to operate effectively in an international marketplace. A highlight of the two-week institute is a competition in which the attendees team up to script, shoot, and edit a short film, all within five days. “The whole experience will put my artistic and technical skills to the test,” says Emma. “I’m excited by the opportunity to get out there in the real world, to make connections with film professionals, and get a glimpse of what the film industry is like.”

How you can make a difference

Of course, this fabulous opportunity comes with a significant cost, not just in program fees, but also the travel across the Atlantic Ocean. Here's where you can make a huge difference: it is 3321 miles from Charlottetown, PEI, to Cannes, France. Every dollar raised gets Emma one mile closer!

Making a film requires a team effort. By donating, you join a growing team that cares about the development of our young Island film talent, a team that will ensure that a unique voice is heard (and seen) onscreen!
