Film Festival Talk

Last week, GreenHeroes producer Joan Prowse and other media professionals gave a talk on how to monetize digital media at the Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatchewan.

Joan drew from her years of experience creating social issue documentaries for CineFocus Canada, the production company behind GreenHeroes. She described how filmmakers can get money to finance their projects and make money from their work by connecting to an audience.

Also on the panel with Joan were: Matt Hornburg of marblemedia, which produces a medieval-themed game show television series for tweens called “Splatalot,” airing on YTV in Canada; Amy Matysio, creator of an online web series called “InSAYSHAble”; and Erica Hargreave of Ahimsa Media, the company behind the interactive series “Roamancing,” about a group of people traveling and looking for love.

Joan Prowse is very proud to be a part of the acclaimed Yorkton Film Festival. It is celebrating its 65th year and is the oldest film festival in North America.

The GreenHeroes television series airs on SCN, Saskachewan’s public television network. It also airs on TVO, Ontario’s public television network.
