CBC's Creator Network is looking for pitches from Quebecers
First Person stories, explainers, video essays all told through your lens
CBC Quebec is looking for storytellers from diverse backgrounds to produce original video content to air on our network. We want creators to tell stories through their own lens, and CBC will license and pay for the content.
What is the Creator Network?
CBC's Creator Network works with a select roster of emerging video creators to produce content for CBC's digital platforms and current affairs shows.
The goal is to give top emerging video talent space on CBC, and pay them to create compelling visual programming that will appeal to audiences between the ages of 18 and 30.
Working with a Creator Network producer, new creators will also have the opportunity to develop their storytelling and production skills.
What we are looking for
The Creator Network aims to develop new voices, particularly from diverse and underrepresented communities. We want to hear from those who are Black, Indigenous, people of colour or LGBTQ2+, those living with disabilities or anyone with a new and fresh idea.
The ideal length for a commissioned video is between five and 10 minutes.
Content creators can be writers, filmmakers, vloggers, photographers, journalists, artists, animators, foodies or anyone else with a compelling idea and visual plan for bright and bold content.
We are open to various formats and genres, including First Person stories, explainers, profiles, video essays, as well as food and lifestyle content.
What matters is that it's a compelling idea driven by strong visual treatments.
Here are some examples of Creator Network pieces from Montreal:
