Kylie Garcelon wins Best Woman Filmmaker - Canadian Diversity Film Festival

Kylie Garcelon, writer-director of her short doc, The Culinary Professor, has won Best Woman Filmmaker at the Canadian Diversity Film Festival (Dec 2016). Garcelon made the film with funding from a small GoFundMe campaign, but without crew or post production.
