National Screen Institute


The National Screen Institute – Canada (NSI) is a charitable, not-for-profit organization with headquarters in Winnipeg. We are Canada’s national film, television and digital media training school for writers, directors and producers. We believe that the best way to learn is by doing.

Our market-driven courses have led to employment and successful careers for graduates by giving them a competitive edge. According to our most recent alumni survey, 96% of respondents are working in the film and TV industry.

  • Courses are led by experts in film, television and digital media – they deliver workshops and seminars and mentor participants.
  • Participants do not have to move away from home.
  • Each course is intensive. Participants learn in one centre for a short period and then return home to work with local mentors on their projects under the leadership of the program manager.
