ABOUT SHANE BELCOURT:

Shane Belcourt (Métis) is an award-winning filmmaker, writer and musician based in Toronto. His feature film, Tkaronto (named after the original Mohawk word for Toronto), has played many international film festivals, most recently winning the Best Director prize at the 2008 Dreamspekers Film Festival and at the 2008 Talking Stick Film Festival. Belcourt was also the recipient of the 2007 IFC Mentorship Award and one of the 22 filmmakers chosen for the 2007 TIFF Talent LAB. Most recently, Belcourt co-wrote and directed Boxed In, a short film produced by the NFB that will be included in the Canadian Pavilion at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Currently, Belcourt is working as the writer-director for two animation projects, a half-hour animation on problem gambling in Aboriginal communities and a personal short animated documentary, Red Car, Blue Hood, about growing up the son of Métis rights leader, Tony Belcourt. Shane has recently been selected to Telefilm’s Feature Aboriginal Storytellers Program to further develop his next dramatic feature film, Better Place.
