Adam Beach Film Institute, Skills Link Program

The ABFI Skills Link Project helped to prepare students for a career in the Media Industry. The program combined Media Theory and Job Placement Experience for all participants. The ABFI Skills Link Project was a unique, socially innovative program that reflected Indigenous Culture while giving students the skill set to succeed in the Media Industry.

Indigenous Production Houses provided shadowing opportunities to prospective Indigenous Young people interested in a career in the Media Arts.

Students developed real time media projects (News, documentary and Short film) tied to a broadcast or media platform (online digital) end use. The project followed real time lines, development, production, marketing and distribution. Students were encouraged to take ownership for their projects.
