Congratulations are in order for MA graduate Ryan Barnett, who was awarded the Documentary Channel Doc Accelerator Scholarship last year!
The Doc Accelerator scholarship program consists of an intensive Festival-based curriculum and an extended mentorship job training opportunity. The goal of the program is to foster a new generation of Canadian documentary filmmakers by providing real-world skills development and economic opportunities within the documentary film, television and digital media industries.
During the Hot Docs festival, Ryan benefited from professional development sessions, workshops, and an all-access pass to the festival with travel and hotel accommodations. After the fest, Ryan will have the opportunity to be paired with a successful Canadian documentary production company and will shadow a mentor for few weeks, gaining valuable experience in the process.

Way to go, Ryan!
