Benn Wiebe

I believe culture is priceless. That's why I champion people's stories. From working with the UN on climate initiatives, to consulting as a producer on feature documentaries that have been Oscar shortlisted or won SXSW's Grand Jury Prize, I have had many roles. I have run film festivals, built-up digital channels, procured partnerships, am an SDG partner for global goals, and teach strategies to film students. I thrive on bringing people together and getting creators to become allies.
