Port Moody’s Shaelyn Johnston will produce a short film for Storyhive’s inaugural Indigenous Storyteller Edition.
Johnston was one of 30 residents in B.C. and Alberta to win a $20,000 grant for The Healing Dance, a work about a young girl who prepares to dance in her first pow wow.
Besides the funding, Johnston will also receive support, mentorship and training.
Her eight-minute movie can be seen this fall on Telus Optik TV on Demand.
