The Powell River Pathways Program is intended to help foster a career pathway into the motion picture industry for young people whose personal situations may prohibit them from doing so.
It is directed toward youth who have experienced personal or systemic obstacles, and who would most benefit from the immersive education and residential experience available in Powell River.
The program is open to all residents of BC who are in full-time, secondary education, yet to graduate high school and are eligible to attend the Powell River Digital Film School (PRDFS) from February to June (second semester).
The program is a collaboration between the PRDFS, the Comweb Foundation and William F. White International (WFW). It is part scholarship from the Comweb Foundation in the form of paid residential billeting to attend the PRDFS, and part work placement with WFW upon the completion of the film school program.
The work placement is intended to take place immediately or shortly following completion of study at the PRDFS and is subject to the selected candidate’s satisfactory completion of this program.
