Each successful documentary project is eligible to receive one of 30 available $50,000 production grants (available to BC and Alberta residents only) from TELUS to produce their Project. The 30 successful Projects will also receive distribution on select TELUS platforms, and the producing teams will receive mentorship and training.
Before the funding is awarded, the Project Lead must submit current proof of residency for the address listed on their submission.
If the Project Lead wishes to execute the TELUS Grant Agreement under a company name, they must provide proof of company ownership indicating they own and control at least 51% of the company and that the company is located in their Community of Residence.
Project Leads as well one member of their team must attend a Creator Workshop on September 14, 2019 in Edmonton for AB Grant recipients & September 15, 2019 in Vancouver for BC Grant recipients.
The workshop is a vital part of the STORYHIVE process for successful Project Leads. Travel stipends will be available on a case-by-case basis.
