WIDC 1999 – Banff

Hosted at The Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity, this WIDC program session included a 3-week Production Module in January 1999. Through workshops, hands-on production and post, directors developed their original fiction scripts and workshopped them with professional (ACTRA) actors; (DGC and IATSE) crew; volunteers (SAIT and ECUAD students doing crew practicums); and supported by Banff Centre staff.

Mentors: Director: Norma Bailey; DOP: Roger Vernon; Actor Liaison, Veen Sood; Instructors/Story Editors: Peg Campbell, Sara Diamond; and WIDC Producer, Carol Whiteman
