Amazon Prime Video has introduced a $1.25 million CAD commitment to help the Canadian BIPOC TV and movie manufacturing artistic neighborhood by donating to the Solidarity Fund, the Indigenous Development Program, and a new pitch program that gives 10 grants of $10,000 (CAD) to Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Colour.
The 10 grants will go to 10 chosen various creators.
Amazon Prime Video can also be partnering with Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) and can help the BIPOC artistic neighborhood that’s going through hardship with the COVID-19 disaster.
Prime Video’s donation will help Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour because the trade tries to recuperate from the injury of COVID-19.
Further, Prime Video and the ISO’s pitch program will award various creators who could have the chance to pitch their scripted or unscripted initiatives to Amazon Studios.
The ISO will work with the Black Screen Office on the pitch program and interact a number of BIPOC-led teams and organizations on outreach.
“As Prime Video continues its investment in Canada, we’re committed to supporting the creative community and the industry. We are proud to work with the Indigenous Screen Office and support diverse and marginalized content creators in the TV and Film sector disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis,” stated Magda Grace, the pinnacle of Prime Video Canada, within the press launch.
