Workshops, Seminars, and Events
We host several workshops, seminars, and events all focused on different equipment and production topics. Some sessions are developed and mounted in cooperation with other organizations, while some are solely a Whites’ initiative. We value the support and collaborations received from the Canadian film industry.
Our instructors are industry professionals who possess a wide variety of expertise, knowledge, and practical experiences. Combined with our equipment resources and industry contacts, we believe our initiatives will leave behind a malleable positive impression on any participant.
Please, see below for a list of what we offer.
