Training Gaps Analysis of Documentary Filmmakers

Commissioned from Hill Strategies Research by the Cultural Human Resources Council

This report summarizes the results of our research into the needs, offerings and gaps related to documentary filmmaker training in Canad, based on web research, interviews with documentary filmmakers, funders and broadcasters, participation in two forums on the issue, and a short online survey of training organizations. Our research was based on the skills competencies created by the Cultural Human Resource Council's Expert Working Group.

As noted in the Request for Proposals from the Cultural Human Resources Council, the purpose of this report is to "determine how prepared documentary filmmakers are in terms of the competencies, and if the education / training system is able to provide instruction in these competencies."
