The SIF programs are aimed at screen content creators who are changemakers, adventurers and pioneers. The SIF programs support creators as they begin their careers, take the next step in their careers, and work to create a more diverse and inclusive industry in our region.

We invite all creatives, talents, entrepreneurs, and anyone involved in film, television, or interactive digital media to participate in the SIF programs.
