Stay tuned for information about BANFF Spark 2023.


The BANFF Spark Accelerator for Women in the Business of Media is designed to address the systemic gap in gender equality and representation by providing essential opportunities and resources to help build significantly more Canadian women-owned businesses that excel both domestically and across the global media industry.

Over the course of three years, BANFF Spark will support up to 200 entrepreneurs with the goal of advancing gender equality and bolstering the economic success of all women. With a strong mandate to champion diversity at its core, the program is especially designed to empower women of colour, Indigenous women, women with disabilities, LGBTQ2S+ women, and non-binary individuals.

“We have learned so much, growing our small company. We met so many great contacts. We were also chosen to pitch our TV series during the pitch session and had several interested broadcasters and distributors reach out to us after.”
Georgina Lopez, Lopii Productions

“My mentor is a brilliant dynamo, and thanks to her help we secured our first network deal for our investigative true crime podcast! We’ve also secured funding for another feature doc and will be filming in spring/summer 2021.”
