Powell River Pathways Program

Scholarship opportunities to attend Powell River Digital Film School and fully paid work placements at William F White


Powell River Pathways Program
June 5, 2022
Powell River & Burnaby

The Powell River Pathways Program offers a pathway for young people whose personal or financial situations may prevent them pursuing a career in the
motion picture industries.

The program is a collaboration between William F. White International, Powell River Digital Film School and the Comweb Foundation. It is open to all residents of BC who are in full time secondary education, able to attend the school from February to June 2023 and will be 18+ at the time of graduation or shortly thereafter.

The purpose of the program is to open a film career pathway, with a particular focus on below the line and technical roles, for youth who would otherwise not have the opportunity to explore this growing and exciting industry.  The Comweb Foundation is providing two scholarship opportunities to attend the Powell River Digital Film School, through payment of billeting associated with the residency costs. Following successful graduation from the program the selected students will join WFW at their Burnaby location, for fully paid work placements lasting up to three months.

At WFW they will join the teams providing the gold standard of equipment, service, and resources to one of the largest film production markets in the world. It is an opportunity for hands-on training with equipment being supplied to highend film and television productions, meet the crews we work with and develop an invaluable skillset.  Following the completion of the three-month WFW placement, the candidate may wish to pursue further education, join an industry organization as a permittee, or be offered full time employment at WFW.

Applications are live with a deadline for submission of June 5, 2022.

Please contact to apply, or for more information on the program

Candidates need to commit to a full-time work placement at WFW’s Burnaby operation, for a period lasting up to three months. Working hours
are 8am – 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Should the candidate fail to abide by the terms of WFWI’s temporary worker agreement, this placement may be terminated at any time. Candidates are also free to terminate their placement at any time, for any reason. Accommodations will be made for academic commitments.
