A previous submitter to our site has developed a pitch and a script for a film project about events very relevant to the theme of this blog. In her words:
I have recently applied to get a $10,000 production grant to make my short film, and I need your help!!
Essentially, it is a story about how trauma and sexual assault can have a lasting effect on the mind and the body. The script aims to create awareness and also fight against rape culture and victim blaming. Even though it is fiction, the script draws a lot from my own personal experiences. One of the assaults in the script happens on public transit.
My video pitch has been approved by Telus for the Storyhive short film competition here in Vancouver, and if it receives enough VOTES online I will be able to claim one of ten Storyhive production grants.
