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
- Documentary web series
- Series of ‘how to’ videos
- Series of fitness videos
- Interview style show
- Review show
- Podcast (with simple visual elements)
- Another type of format you would like to explore.
Pitch your film, livestream idea, video series and more at STORYHIVE.com before June 3.
