Cpics' "The Next Gen Filmmaker Project" Announces Inaugural Mentee Class for Program Elevating South Asian Creatives
'The Next Gen Filmmaker Project' has chosen four South Asian-American mentees with script ideas they will develop alongside mentor Kavi Raz and upcoming streaming service Cpics.
The selected participants will have support and guidance to develop a treatment and script for their project idea. They will then have their stories produced by Cpics, a streaming service dedicated to South Asian content that will launch later in 2022. The final content produced during the course of this program will be distributed on Cpics' platform for subscribers to view in 2023.
The mentees were chosen from a competitive pool of candidates, and have each created a synopsis of a project that they're eager to share with a larger audience through Cpics. They will work with veteran producer and actor Kavi Raz, who is serving as the lead mentor.
The mentees joining the program and the projects they are developing are:
The selected mentees have expressed their excitement for the mentorship program and look forward to the opportunity to tell their stories. The mentorship program aims to bring the industry one step closer to proper representation on screen, reflecting the reality of the diverse world we live in.
Cpics will be launching summer 2022. For more information, go to http://cpics.tv.
