Best Filmmaker

Gold Winner Megan Wennberg, Drag Kids

Silver Winner Thom Fitzgerald, Splinters

Bronze Winner Andrea Dorfman, The Girls of Meru

Megan Wennberg’s documentary, Drag Kids, features four youth exploring (and excelling at) the art of drag, and the community and friendships they discover in the process. Wennberg says it’s “a film about the importance of self-expression and finding community—and I think we can all relate to that, whether or not we love the art of drag.” Currently working on another documentary for CBC’s POV program, Wennberg hopes her film can help us connect with ourselves. “I am so grateful for this award, and honestly was also completely shocked when I found out I won. I hope it means more people will get to see Drag Kids, because I think they have a lot to teach us about being our fiercest, most fabulous selves.”
