Check out the story about our show, QANURLI, by CBC North.
The little Inuktitut comedy show that aims high! Nukurmiik to our broadcaster Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, our funders CMF and the Nunavut Film Development Corporation and also to First Air, The Airline of the North for supporting us in taking the show to other Inuit regions this weekend! #Qanurli
The Northern Journal did a story on Qanurli. From small budget kids in Iqaluit teaching ourselves how to make a tv show with IBC, to starting our own company, Qanukiaq Studios, getting a broadcast license and becoming a CMF funded show – its been a crazy fun and challenging ride for us right from the start. Never give up guys!
We need to give a shout out here for those early years of mentorship and support given to us and Qanurli by Kath Clarida-Fry, Angie Pajek and Stephanie Brown who worked with us at IBC. We also had some teammates in those years that worked crazy hard and contributed some of the awesomest ideas, such as Nooks Lindell! Nakurmiik to our growing team of collaborators and mentors today also. It takes a team.
