Pathways Mentorship Program
Realscreen is updating Pathways, its annual mentorship program, to select young, up-and-coming industry professionals to gain professional development through mentorship opportunities and complimentary access to the Realscreen Summit Virtual Marketplace. The goal of the program is to further develop the careers of content creators who are under the age of 30, by pairing them with leaders in unscripted and non-fiction entertainment production who will provide guidance and feedback to aid them in their professional development.
Realscreen has confirmed an A-list team of mentors who will each be paired with a selected finalist. Mentors confirmed for the 2021 Pathways Mentorship Program are:
Back Roads Entertainment
Entertainment One Television
Sweet July Productions
