In 2014 Leonie Sandercock received a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant to explore the use of film as a catalyst for language revitalization and economic development. In partnership with the Council of the Haida Nation and Kingulliit, the Inuit film production company that made the multiple award-winning Atanarjuat: the fast runner, Leonie spent a year working with the two Haida communities in Skidegate and Old Massett holding community story gathering workshops, script writing workshops, and a writing contest that selected three young Haida to develop a feature film script.
