Netflix Animation and Sony Pictures Entertainment are launching mentorship programs to support aspiring Latinx and Asian Pacific Islander animators. We told you about how Netflix launched a Content Creator Program to support BIPOC filmmakers. Now, the streaming service is launching another initiative in partnership with the Latino Film Institute’s LatinX in Animation branch and autism education organization Exceptional Minds for the new Netflix Animation Foundations Program, which kicks off during Hispanic Heritage Month. The four-month mentorship program will identify and select 75 mentees and pair them with mentors from Netflix Animation Studio. Chosen mentees will learn about ways to break into the industry, be advised on planning their career growth, portfolio curation, and resumés so they can apply for internships, training programs, and entry-level animation positions. Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Entertainment is partnering with nonprofit the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment (CAPE) for an Animation Directors Accelerator that will give rising API animation directors the chance to boost their careers through one-on-one executive mentorship as well as panels, workshops, and masterclasses with high-level industry executives, producers, and creatives.

YPulse’s employment and career goals behavioral research found that 47% percent of 13-39-year-old Hispanic and Asian consumers want a job in the arts, and this program will help Latinx and API individuals interested in pursuing a career in animation.
