About the grant

The SunButter Storytellers Film Grant (SSFG) was created in 2021 as an opportunity for budding film makers to bring to life a creative vision in the themes
of Adventure, Nature, Inclusivity, Conservation and Artivism.

The idea was born from a lockdown inspiration to host mini film festivals curated by a different housemate each week. An activity that brought us so much joy and made us remember the importance and the power of storytelling.
