Every year Telus supports filmmakers with the opportunity to compete for 1 of 40 $10,000 short film grants. Our entry this year is for a film called “Newmerico”
Newmerico tells the story of a couple who wake up to discover that the country they live in has been sold to a multinational company known as the Pan-Atlantic Northern Conglomerate. At their door is Scott Holmes, one of the hired “Transition Specialists” whos job it is to speak with each household and put them at ease, while supplying them with their new identification documents and answering questions about their place in what is now know as Newmerico.
For the project to secure one of these production grants, people must vote for the project at:
Voting goes from April 3rd to April 6th and you are able to vote for up to 5 projects each day. We would love your support to put Newmerico into full production!
