TELUS STORYHIVE showcasing Lethbridge talent

A special initiative is helping to make sure that underrepresented filmmakers have a chance to shine.

The Black Creators Edition from TELUS STORYHIVE is highlighting the wonderful talent that is featured right here in Lethbridge.

Sammy Golom created the film, Out of Frame, which showcases black cultures and lived experiences of people who have escaped war and made their way to Lethbridge.

Staff with TELUS STORYHIVE told us this new film is vital in representing the lives of those who have come to Canada.

“This project, I think was a really personal project for Sammy. And it’s really an example of sort of these amazing stories that are in our local communities that don’t always have an avenue to get out there and to share with the community. I mean, yeah, Out of Frame, I find, is a really great example of that, where there’s this amazing, powerful story that may never have seen the light of day. So now that it’s out there, I think it’s going to have a real impact in the community,” said Shaun Cathcart, the program manager of TELUS STORYHIVE.

A total of $20,000 was awarded in production funding, one-on-one mentorship, and personalized training in the making of the film.
