Dimestore Productions Inc.

As the name suggests, Dimestore is a boutique production company, based in Vancouver, BC.

 

Established in 2001 by Sheona McDonald and later joined by Jonathan Lloyd Walker, our focus is to make high quality programming for Canadian and International markets.

Our first film, Lifers: Stories From Prison, was an hour long documentary about men serving life sentences in Canadian penitentiaries.  We then produced Capturing A Short Life, a captivating, poignant and award-winning film about families dealing with infant loss. In 2010, we completed When Dreams Take Flight for the documentary channel. It is a dynamic film that explores why humans are compelled to fly like birds.

 

We won two Canadian Screen Awards for this film, one for writing and one for Robert Swartz's editing.

We followed up these successes with a feature length doc, Inside Her Sex, about female sexuality and shame, again for the documentary channel.

Our feature length doc, Candice, about feminist icon Candida Royalle can be watched on Vimeo. Our a short experimental documentary, directed and co-written by Sheona McDonald, Into Light, produced by the National Film Board, is just starting its festival tour; and the film A short Essay on Men can be seen here.

We have just finished post-production on Dead Man's Switch a crypto mystery, which will be widely available throughout the second half of 2021.
