Thank you all that applied. Applications are now closed.
We all grew up on the Sesame Street characters, learning our ABCs and numbers through this beloved program, which is celebrating its 50th season. We are excited to once again offer an opportunity for Canadian filmmakers to be discovered by this iconic company, and to have their work shown to young children all over the world. The Sesame Workshop team will join us in Toronto for a Breakfast at TIFF on April 12. They're here to catch up with local content creators and to hear great pitches on short-film ideas!
This program is open to anyone who has directed, produced, or written a minimum of one short film or has contributed to a kids’ TV show or online series.
