Two IFF members, Brian Sharp and Adam Perry, are in the running for Telefilm Canada’s new micro budget feature program. The program will grant $100,000 to ten successful production teams from across Canada to create a low-budget feature film. The Island Media Arts Co-op was selected as one of 20 organizations to put forward one application to the national competition. IMAC brought together a jury of industry professionals from PEI and NS to make a selection from a pool of PEI projects.
The Assassination of Michael Ellis – a story about teenage bullying in school – was selected for the national competition. The script was written by PEI-writer Mickey Acorn and if the project is chosen, will be produced by Brian Sharp and directed by Adam Perry.
