Indigenous Filmmakers Bursary offered by Vancouver Film Studios & Pacific Backlot


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.


If you would like to help us spread the word about this bursary, please feel free to refer to our Communications Guide and print our poster to put up around your organization or add to your social media post: PDF or image file.
