Giving Voice: Filmmakers Working with Filmmakers, a mentorship initiative established by the Documentary Organization of Canada and CBC digital channel documentary, is accepting applications for its 2012 program.

This year’s program will offer up to eight apprentices the opportunity to work with seasoned documentarians, and to gain “in the field” training as well as valuable feedback on working techniques and best practices through the four-month mentorship.

The program was launched in 2011, and last year’s edition brought together seven candidates with experienced documentary filmmakers and producers. Interested individuals from across Canada, including filmmakers from under-represented communities, are encouraged to apply.

“Giving Voice is a great program because it offers a rare opportunity to shadow an experienced professional and observe the creative process at work,” said DOC’s chair, Katie McKenna. “It’s also unique in targeting professionals who are already working in the field, and ready to take next steps to advance their careers.”
