Sarah Shelson

Sarah Shelson is an award-winning screenwriter, producer and audience engager. She has a strong interest in the digital sphere and in transmedia properties that feature narratives and themes not found in mainstream media.

Along with her partners at Cherrydale Productions, she has created and produced The March Family Letters webseries which was the successful recipient of funding from the Independent Production Fund and was featured in Macleans Magazine, as well as a webseries co-production with Corus Digital called All For One. All For One was one of ten recipients of the inaugural CMF web series pilot program and is currently in production for its second season.

When not creating, she is kept busy managing the programming of the Transmedia Zone. These events span from critical discussions on the challenges facing our current media landscape to games and independent creator nights.
