Pitch + Plan

For the 2022 Indigenous Storyteller Edition, projects will be selected by a selection committee comprised of experienced Indigenous filmmakers and Indigenous TELUS team members. Additionally, this committee will be supported by external Indigenous moderators who will review all submissions. 30 projects will be selected to receive production funding, training, mentorship and distribution support. Each awarded project receives a $20,000 production grant plus additional top up funding from the Indigenous Screen Office and Creative BC.

Learn + Create

Each successful team will work with mentors to produce and deliver a short program, 10+ minutes in duration, and a supplementary content piece 30+ minutes in duration. Projects will be featured on select TELUS platforms in 2024.
