Women in Film and Television Vancouver (WIFT-V) has announced two upcoming Indigenous Storytelling and Screenwriting Seminars to take place in Kamloops on October 27 and Enderby on October 28.
In August 2-17, in an effort to increase the participation of Indigenous women in the film industry, WIFT-V launched a Vancouver program called Tricksters and Writers. The successful program offered master classes to 13 women, and further developed the screenplays of six writers through story editing sessions and actor table read workshops. WIFT-V is now seeking to design and implement a similar program for the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.
In order to develop a program that meets the needs of Indigenous women in this community, WIFT-V is inviting Indigenous women with an interest in screenwriting to one of two seminars: October 27 at Thompson River University in Kamloops and October 28 at the Splatisn Community Centre in Enderby. The seminars will be led by Doreen Manual and Petie Chalifoux and will include conversations around storytelling and cultural authenticity as well as a film screening.
