New Partnership for Complections and Canadian Film Centre


Toronto, October 10, 2011

Two of Canada's leading cultural institutions have developed a mutual agreement which will further the co-operative industry links in Canada's vital creative entertainment sector.

The Canadian Film Centre and Complections, College of Make-up Art and Design, both key Toronto based organizations providing high level advanced training of career specialists, will undertake a joint program to promote excellence of make-up and hair within the film and television production sector.

By terms of the mutual agreement, the CFC will access selected Complections graduates to work on current film and television projects and productions while the Complections alumni will obtain invaluable post-graduate hands-on experience and credit for their work.

In September, the first opportunity was given to Blake Evernden, a Complections graduate who gained time and union points working on six CFC Short Dramatic Film productions over the course of six days.

In making the announcement in Toronto, Complections President Pamela Earle said:

“We are committed to the investment in Canadian talent by the provision of excellent cutting edge education and training for those seeking careers in the cultural arena. We hope that the success of this program will serve as a template for many future joint projects.”

Founded in 1988 by acclaimed filmmaker Norman Jewison, the CFC is Canada's leading institution for advanced training in film, television and new media. Further information on the CFC may be obtained at

Serving the fashion and performing arts as well as the film and television industries, Complections is Canada's major private college for make-up art and design. Complete information may be found at
