Rose-Marie Daniels! 


I feel very honoured to have been awarded with the Lunenburg Doc Fest bursary this year, and to have had the opportunity to experience so many inspirational documentaries this weekend. I am very appreciative of the support that this festival provides to young filmmakers through their youth program and bursary, and I thank them again for their aid in pursuing a future in film. I am so grateful for the support the bursary provides, and I have really enjoyed the festival!
