The Documentary Institute (DOC Ontario) and the National Film Board (NFB) have engaged in a research and consultation process to support a new initiative aimed at providing professional development and training for Indigenous and racialized documentary creative producers.

The scope of the research was to test the assumption that there is an urgent need to address the underrepresentation of Indigenous and racialized producers in the documentary film industry, and to support informed approaches to creating initiatives that have an impact on increasing opportunities for success, with a specific focus on creative producers.

Abstract

Research conducted with the objective of providing background information and context for the development of training initiatives for Indigenous and racialized producers.
