Earlier today I received news that I was awarded a screenwriting grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
This past October, I put in an application for funds to finish my feature script (working title ‘My Perverted Heart’), and the Council accepted my proposal. I’ve received a couple of painting grants in the past, but this is my first successful grant application in the media arts and it’s a huge validation for me as a writer/filmmaker.
I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to the members of the jury, the Canada Council itself, and the Canadian taxpayers who support it. This grant is truly appreciated, and couldn’t have come at a better time.
