In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.

STORYHIVE is proud to partner with Reel Youth to run the Youth Community Stories program to provide aspiring filmmakers opportunities to explore documentary filmmaking and storytelling with the guidance of experts in the field.

STORYHIVE has supported a community of more than 18,000 local content creators across British Columbia and Alberta since 2013, providing over $11 million in funding and creating a safe space for storytellers to hone their skills and bring the projects they care about to life. The team is proud to empower diverse emerging creators to tell stories that reflect their communities and culture. For more information, visit https://www.storyhive.com/.
