A year-long development experience for promising Canadian women in film, the #TIFF21 Talent Accelerator participants are: Directors: Omolola Ajao Sarra El Abed Producers: Tamara Mariam Dawit Shehrezade Mian Screenwriters: Yasmine Mathurin Mayumi Yoshida
The country's major funding provider for films is updating its eligibility criteria amid growing criticism that projects be primarily in English, French or an Indigenous language.
Filmmakers like Vancouver-based Mayumi Yoshida say Telefilm Canada's criteria are outdated and don't reflect the breadth of Canadian experiences, especially those of immigrants and people of colour.
Mayumi Yoshida is returning to The Man in the High Castle for the final season. In this exclusive interview, she talks about the Crown Princess’ return.
