Another exciting announcement for filmmakers, STORYHIVE’s Web Series Edition is back and applications are open! This is a big opportunity for filmmakers based in BC and Alberta to pitch their show ideas. Get a team together and apply for one of 40 $20,000 production grants to make a pilot for a locally based web series (yes, they’re funding 40). Deadline is September 19!
Some key things to note:
- The pilot can be 10 to 30 minutes long, giving you lots of flexibility to choose a project length that suits your story.
- There is no voting in this edition. The projects will be selected by a jury.
- The 40 awarded pilot episodes will be eligible for one of two Series Awards, a $60,000 grant to produce up to 10 additional episodes.
The selected creators will also receive customized career training, filmmaking mentorship and distribution of their projects on select TELUS platforms.
Applications close at 12:00pm PDT/1:00pm MDT on Thursday, September 19, 2019. To apply and for more information, head over here.
