Calling all emerging franco and Québec queer filmmakers!
The I+N StoryLab/ histoires queer contemporaines, produced by image+nation culture queer, in collaboration with Telefilm Canada and SODEC, will bring queer content creators together with queer filmmaking mentors from across the country for a storytelling thinktank and short film scriptwriting initiative beginning in September and continuing with weekly mentorship sessions into the Fall.
We are looking for a roster of diverse, driven and above all creative applicants interested in working to get their stories written so they can be seen!
Through workshops and mentorship, the I+N StoryLab/ histoires queer contemporaines will focus on developing useful tools and strategies to foster authenticity, outreach, production, collaboration and connection through Storytelling. The I+N StoryLab/ histoires queer contemporaines will provide participants with concrete means to create New Canadian Queer Stories that speak of contemporary queer perspectives and experiences.
Emphasizing inclusivity, this initiative seeks participants that represent our country’s diverse regional voices – fostering content creation from distinct Canadian perspectives and positionings while emphasizing voices from francoqueers and underrepresented queers from Indigenous, 2Spirit, indigiqueer, BPOC and other racialized communities to take up the call.
