Bretten Hannam is a Two-Spirit filmmaker of Mi’kmaw, Ojibwe, and Scottish ancestry living in Kespukwitk, Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia) where he was raised. His films deal with themes of community, culture, language, and tradition with a focus on Two-Spirit / LGBTQ and gender identity.
He is a Fellow of the Praxis Centre for Screenwriters, Outfest Screenwriting Lab, and the Canadian Film Centre’s Screenwriting Lab. Bretten is an instructor as NSCADU and for AFCOOP’s Film5 program. Over the weekend he will be taking creators through the entire writing process. Bretten can give notes on participants’ screenplays.
