Event description

Description

Bretten Hannam is a Two-Spirit filmmaker of Mi'kmaw, Ojibwe, and Scottish ancestry living in

Kespukwitk, Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia) where he was raised. His films deal with themes of

community, culture, language, and tradition with a focus on Two-Spirit / LGBTQ and gender

identity. He is a Fellow of the Praxis Centre for Screenwriters, Outfest Screenwriting Lab,

and the Canadian Film Centre’s Screenwriting Lab.


Bretten is an instructor as NSCADU and for AFCOOP's Film5 program. Over the weekend he will be taking

creators through the entire writing process. We encourage those from the Indigenous and LGBTQ+ communities

to take this course. There will be time set aside on the Sunday for Bretten to talk specifically to writers from

each community who may have questions or want input on their stories.


There is a limited number of seats for this session. Pre-registration is required.
