Come learn about funding opportunities for independent filmmakers in Nova Scotia! This workshop will provide insight into where to look and how to apply, and is geared toward beginners. 

Location: Zoom

Instructor: Stephanie Joline

Stephanie Joline is an Indigenous writer, director, and producer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her Indigenous roots come from her mother who is Inuit from Labrador; her father is French Acadian from the South shore of Nova Scotia. Equally adept at film and television, Stephanie's stories provoke conversation, break boundaries, and are deeply rooted in inclusivity and feminism. Stephanie is part of a new cohort of filmmakers who are elevating Nova Scotia screen arts, executing big ideas on small budgets, to an international level.

Stephanie has also directed for television and streaming platforms (Stream Me 2020, Amazon Prime; Farm Crime 2020 CBC Gem; Spirit Talker 2019, APTN), made several short films, and created music videos for Gabrielle Papillon, Nathan Wiley, and Nicole Ariana among others. In 2020 she was awarded the Irving Avrich Award from TIFF recognizing rising Canadian talent. As Night Blooms begins its festival run, she recently made the long list for the DGC Discovery Award, which highlights some of the best Canadian emerging directors to keep an eye on this festival season.
