ABOUT THE PROGRAM
No film degree? No problem. Beginners welcome.

If you have an idea for a local story to share, we want to help you bring it to life.

In collaboration with TELUS STORYHIVE, VoVo Productions is offering a program to train, mentor and support residents of British Columbia and Alberta to each make a locally reflective short video documentary, with the filmmaking tools they have available.

Completed documentaries will be made available on TELUS Optik TV® On Demand. This program was created to provide professional support and mentorship to empower first-time documentary filmmakers in Western Canada who have a story about their community they are passionate to share.
