Truly sad to hear you're leaving Telefilm. I believe you were the right leader at the right time. Smart, bold, & filled with integrity, Black, Indigenous & POC filmmakers of all genders should feel huge gratitude to the ally you have proven to be. Goodluck on your next endeavour!
I will be moving on from my role at @Telefilm_Canada, effective September 9, 2022, to another organization.
I joined Telefilm to make meaningful changes, and am so proud of what we’ve accomplished together with the industry.
2022 started out brilliantly! 1st I delivered on our amazing new doc series #BLK, which aired on @globaltv & @historyca, and then I got a @WIFT Crystal Award for Creative Excellence. I got this video to prove it! Check out me winning with some #inspiring and #creative women.💜✨
Thanks @globeandmail for listing me as one of 2022’s most influential filmmakers, citing my involvement as a founder and the Chair of the @BLKScreenOffice. So proud that the BSO was created to break down barriers and create a path for Black creatives to flourish in our industry.
Did you know that Poet Laureate George Elliott Clark was the inaugural recipient, in 1998, of the Portia White Prize for Artistic Excellence, awarded by the Gov. of Nova Scotia? These days you can find him in the powerful, new doc series BLK: An Origin Story. Stream on @GlobalTV!
The brilliant George Elliott Clarke who is featured in BLK: An Origin Story will be reciting his award-winning poetry in #Toronto on April 1st! Come out in person to enjoy pure poetic delights with one of our ✨brightest lights! ✨ #Poetry#GeorgeElliottClarke#TranzacClub
Congrats to WIFT-T Crystal Award winner, @justjenholness!
