STORYHIVE open call

STORYHIVE is offering grants of $5K to new and emerging creators in British Columbia and Alberta to make a locally reflective 60+ minute creative project of your dreams. No wrong answers. Nothing is off-limits. And beginners are welcome! A minimum of 50 grants will be awarded.

STORYHIVE will provide awarded projects with a Creator Kit (a manual for your production and delivery) and a recorded training session – plus the STORYHIVE project managers are available to help you throughout your STORYHIVE journey. Previous experience is not required and pitches from first-time content creators are encouraged.

In addition to the funding, successful creators will receive distribution of their projects on select TELUS platforms.

In an effort to fund more stories from a rural perspective, the grants are only available in certain eligible communities.

Examples of eligible, nonfiction content include:

  • Single video documentary
