DIVERSITY IN FILM INITIATIVE
InFocus directly supports artists from diverse backgrounds looking to break into the entertainment industry. The Diversity In Film Initiative offers bursaries of up to $2500 to people with a diverse or racialized heritage, members of historically marginalized communities, or those who have faced adversity due to disability or systemic biases. That means we are looking for filmmakers and visual storytellers who are LGBTQ2SAI+, BIPOC, facing mental or physical barriers, or are otherwise underrepresented in the film industry. We’re here to get your story heard.
Resources exist to aid in the financing of your education, especially if you face discrimination or other barriers to employment. Explore the LGBTQ2SAI+ scholarships and bursaries below.
PRIDE IN VANCOUVER
There’s no better place to study film as an LGBTQ2SAI+ student than Vancouver. With a long history of championing LGBTQ2SAI+ rights and a thriving queer community, this city is the perfect place to explore your identity and tell your story on the big screen.
Not only does our city have a long history of inclusivity and diversity, but film and entertainment arts is also one of the biggest industries in Vancouver. The entertainment industry is full of LGBTQ2SAI+ leaders, resulting in an extremely welcoming, safe, and inclusive workplace for queer and diverse individuals. InFocus Film School is committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for students of all backgrounds to prepare them to enter this industry, explore their passions, and succeed in all aspects of their lives.
