Two equity programs designed to catalyze below-the-line access, plus something for everyone
Taking action with Sector Labour Market Support
Following on insights of a recent Labour Market study (2019) undertaken by B.C.’s motion picture industry, the Creative Pathways initiative has been funded to focus on actions that will increase the participation of people from underrepresented communities in the below-the-line workforce.
In addition to the website, which intends to give greater visibility to careers in the industry, two specific equity programs have been designed to support career pathways for Indigenous, Black and People of Colour, those who are LGBTQ2AI+, People Living with Disabilities and Women.

For B.C. film industry hirers
Could you or your union/guild give a few hours to share expertise and answer questions from jobseekers aiming to build a career in the motion picture industry? Creative Pathways wants to hear from you! Our team will design the callout, promote the opportunity, coordinate the online session and bring supportive facilitators to run the session with you.
A third option for everyone: Greet 10x
Recognizing that there is so much information and knowledge to be transferred from B.C.’s motion picture industry insiders and experts to next generation and interested industry talent, open online learning events for exponentially larger groups are being designed and delivered by members of industry.

For those in B.C.’s motion picture ecosystem

Creative Pathways will promote your event on our Opportunities pages.
Industry Call to Action!
Your motion picture organization can become part of the change.
Below-the-line employers with established equity programs are invited to contact Creative Pathways to discuss launching Setwork and/or Meet 10 Opportunities.
