Education & Training

MPPIA’s Education & Training Committee brings together members of the BC motion picture production community to share information on industry training and education in British Columbia.

The Committee’s purpose is to facilitate and track consistent, industry specific and standardized education and training that will keep the BC industry globally competitive. The Committee monitors and manages issues related to the Motion Picture Industy Orientation Course (MPIO) in cooperation with Actsafe and the BC Film Commission.

The MPPIA Education & Training Committee also presents the Motion Picture Industry Career Expo annually in cooperation with Etch Media. This is an information event featuring industry companies, educators and labour organizations,  providing timely insight and advice to students and professionals interested in working in screen based industries.

The MPPIA/Etch Media Career Expo takes place every fall, this year on November 21st at the Roundhouse — further details to be announced later this spring.
