Best wishes to our friend and colleague Kaya Wheeler as she takes on the new role of outreach and program coordinator with the Indigenous Screen Office.
Elise retires this month after almost a decade with the National Screen Institute. NSI’s Rachel Young spoke with her about some of her proudest accomplishments.
Shelly will talk about NSI’s programs and the process from application to acceptance, right through to getting a project made.
Joy recently attended the the global summit which brings together people to share experiences and generate momentum for a future where representation and inclusion are the new screen industry standards.
Joy chats with Nolan Bicknell about the importance of giving a hand up to others, bringing out their potential and how everyone has a story to tell.
She’s participating in two panels, giving expert advice over breakfast and serving as a juror for Pitchfest.
Through her work as manager of CBC New Indigenous Voices and NSI IndigiDocs, Ursula has made a difference in the lives and careers of over 150 filmmakers and storytellers.
Kaya is nominated for the RBC On the Rise Award and Angela for the Making a Difference Award.
Shelly will present a session about NSI on Wednesday, May 23 with NSI alumni Jason Arsenault and Adam Perry.
Hanging out with NSI grads, butter chicken at The Fat Fox, and zero temperatures, NSI’s Chris Vajcner reports on the northern festival.
