The Kootenay Screen-Based Industry (KSBI) presents: The Momentum Masterclass Series. 

This intensive workshop series is made available to emerging KSBI professionals and artists residing within the Kootenay Columbia region. Participants will have the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the film production process to assist them in developing their craft, creative projects, and refine their artistic eye. They will learn from industry professionals who have extensive experience in the field, as well as having experience giving workshops to ensure workshop instruction will be of professional quality.

We call this Masterclass series “Momentum” because this word represents the collective strength and forward motion of the KSBI in becoming recognized as an area alive and flourishing with film talent. The masterclass series empowers, invigorates and inspires the local KSBI network. There is a current of forwarding momentum in the development of the local industry, and this masterclass series helps community participants be a part of that growth. Momentum is created through motion – through the art of motion pictures.

Many thanks to our funders, Columbia Basin Trust and Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, for making this all possible.
