Polly Washburn
Coding, Content Creation and Production

I've used film, words and the web to help individuals and organizations tell their stories for two decades now. Click on each tab below to find out more about each area I've worked in.

Film & Television

In the last 15 years in the film and television industry, I have served as a producer, line producer, production manager, assistant director and script supervisor. My current project is a documentary on Immigration policy called Seeking Solutions.

Passionflower, a feature film I produced, spent three years at festivals winning awards, then went on to Canadian television and digital streaming worldwide. I served as the associate producer and writer for a season of the GLBTQ travel show Bump.

I attended the Canadian Film Centre's Television Writing Program, and took a feature project to the National Screen Institute's Features First program.

Journalism

I've worked as a journalist and editor for publications in Canada and the U.S. for 20 years. I currently write on data-driven topics for Marijuana Moment. I was a writer and digital producer for the Denver Post's Cannabist, the nation's first cannabis industry vertical in a city newspaper.

Previously, I was the news and books editor at Perimeter magazine in Winnipeg, Canada. I was also an interim editor and long-time writer for Prairie Books Now.


Interactive Digital Content Creation

I have created dozens of websites and digital marketing campaigns for small businesses, non-profit organizations, university departments, artists of all kinds, film promotions and event marketing.
