Our Mission

We feel strongly that mentoring is a crucial part of our mission and that it is incumbent upon us to ensure that new generations in the film, television, and new media business are able to take advantage of the experiences of those who have preceded them.

The Vancouver Post Alliance Mentorship Program nurtures emerging talent in the post production entertainment industry by connecting accepted Mentees with established professionals who can offer advice and guidance. Mentees get the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the post production industry’s business practices and culture, focus their efforts, and hone their skills.

Mentors and Mentees are expected to maintain mutual respect, honesty, and confidentiality at all times.
