Canadian Film Center bows Music Lab

Org will offer education to film musicians

Toronto — The Canadian Film Center will launch the Slaight Family Music Lab this fall, it was announced Thursday at an event attended by CFC founder and chair emeritus Norman Jewison.

The lab — the latest addition to CFC’s integrated career-accelerating programs for Canuck film, TV, screen-acting and digital-media talent — is open to peer-nominated Canuck applicants.

It offers a nine-month residency of high-level programming to two composers and two songwriters to boost onscreen skills and expand professional networks.

Canuck composer Mychael Danna (“Moneyball,” “The Life of Pi”) is the lab’s composer chair; singer-songwriter Jim Cuddy, of recent Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee Blue Rodeo, is songwriter chair.

Radio broadcast mogul Gary Slaight, whose family foundation will support the lab, commented, “I share Norman Jewison’s belief that music is an amazing storytelling tool and I am excited to see how our worlds will come together to launch great talent and great content.”
