Hi Everyone,

We are proud to announce our first annual Indigenous Filmmaker Bursary, open to all Indigenous people aged 16+ in British Columbia.

First Nations’ storytelling and representation have been largely missing from our media landscape and we would like to play a part in starting to reverse this longstanding inequity.

The bursary includes:

  • $5,000 to make a film

  • Additional resources, where available, such as lighting and grip equipment from Pacific Backlot, soundstage space at VFS, and recognition on our social media channels.

For more information, rules, and application details, please see here

Regards, Vancouver Film Studios & Pacific Backlot
