About the program:

The Netflix-BANFF Diversity of Voices Initiative will jumpstart and accelerate the careers of up to 100 participants at BANFF 2019 by providing full registration access to the festival, a bespoke professional development curriculum plus access to networking opportunities with key industry buyers.

In addition, a sub-group of twenty-five (25) of the program applicants will be selected to take part in the Diversity of Voices Pitch Program where they will receive personalized advice from high-profile industry mentors and take pitch meetings with international buyers at BANFF in addition to receiving a stipend to defray travel costs.

"Life changing. What I learned and who I met in such a short period of time was amazing." Joy Haskell, Writer/Director/Producer

"I didn’t realize how much I wanted to write for TV until I was at BANFF and I wouldn’t have been able to have that realization had it not been for the DoV Pitch Program." Ana-Marija Stojic, Creator/Comedian
