LIFT welcomes the participants of the Newcomer Filmmentor 2020 Program

Toronto, May 14, 2020—The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is pleased to welcome four newcomer filmmakers to participate in the Newcomer Filmmentor 2020 Program. In the past few years, we have become aware of an increased interest from newcomers who are either looking to translate their film experiences into a Canadian context or looking to transition into filmmaking. However, the challenges encountered on their part are apparent and understandably overwhelming. Through this mentorship, LIFT hopes to ease their transition process, while bolstering their creative and technical skills.
