Market Mentorship Matching Program

CMPA-BC is pleased to announce the launch of the Market Mentorship Matching Program, a new initiative designed to assist CMPA-BC members who are seeking to attend their first international market. Mentees will be partnered with an experienced Mentor who can help guide them through their first market experience. Applications for both Mentors and Mentees are now open.

Our Market Mentors and Mentees will:

Meet at least once, prior to the market, in person

Meet at least once, after the market

Communicate by email, text or phone to answer questions prior to and during the market, on a reasonable basis

Following the market the Mentor will receive an honorarium from CMPA-BC. Both participants will also need to complete a short follow-up survey.

Markets eligible for the program are: MIPCOM, AFM, Content London, Realscreen Summit, Kidscreen Summit and EFM-Berlin.

Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis but participation is limited. All participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, meals and other miscellaneous costs and arrangements, as well as the cost of registering for the markets.

Additionally, Creative BC has a limited number of travel support grants available through its Passport to Markets program. To learn more and apply for the Passport to Markets program, click here.
