Emerging storytellers are the future of our industry. Together, we can help them realize their dreams
Back in March, thanks to donations from two generous supporters, NSI launched a matching donor campaign to coincide with the start of training for NSI Totally Television and NSI IndigiDocs students. But then COVID-19 hit so we made the decision to pause our call-to-action due to the financial impact on so many within our community.
But that meant we never got a chance to shine the spotlight on some of the amazing donors who contributed to the campaign in its early days and properly acknowledge their support and generosity.
So now we’re picking up where we left off and over the next few weeks, as a show of gratitude, want to introduce you to some of those donors and send our heart-felt thanks to those who continue to make monthly donations in support of NSI storytellers. We couldn’t do it without you.
One of the special people who enabled our matching donor campaign was the acclaimed producer Avi Federgreen who made a gift to NSI on behalf of Federgreen Entertainment Inc. and Indiecan Entertainment Inc.
Avi sees firsthand the incredible impact training has on our alumni. He’s worked with more than 30 NSI alumni over the years including Kirsten Carthew, Jeremy LaLonde, Jennifer Podemski and Kyle Bornais.
