“The ACTRA National Diversity Committee is pleased to launch the winning videos of the Short Film Script Competition 2.0. Applicants were asked to submit scripts that answered the question, “How are diverse Canadian stories important for our screens and our society?” The winning scripts – Give Physical Diversity a Shake by UBCP/ACTRA Member Darren Howarth-Chapel; Drum With Us by ACTRA Ottawa Member Christine Mao; and Family Tree by ACTRA Maritimes Member Gordon Patrick White – were announced October 2, 2015 and now the winning videos are available for viewing!
