At the National Screen Institute, we’re thrilled to celebrate our alumni and their accomplishments. Through this segment, Focal Point, we aim to highlight the significant milestones our alumni achieve in their projects and careers.

Congratulations to Lisa Meeches (NSI Storytellers, Indigenous Training Programs Advisor to NSI), who is set to join the Order of Canada in recognition of her contributions to Canadian film and broadcasting.

Lisa’s contributions to the industry have been ground-breaking. From founding the production company Eagle Vision to serving as executive director of the Manito Ahbee Festival, Lisa strives to keep Indigenous stories at the forefront.

Lisa previously received the Order of Manitoba in 2017, the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Media and Communications in 2007, and the YMCA-YWCA Woman of Distinction Award in 2009.
