Dimestore Productions

As the name suggests, we are a boutique production company based in Vancouver, BC.

Established in 2001 by Sheona McDonald, our focus is to produce high quality documentary films for television broadcast.

Our first film, Lifers: Stories From Prison, was an hour long documentary about men serving life sentences in Canadian penitentiaries. More recently we produced Capturing A Short Life a captivating, poignant and award-winning film about families dealing with infant loss. In 2011 we finished an hour-long film that broadcast on Documentary, When Dreams Take Flight, that explores why humans are compelled to fly like birds as it follows a group of students building a human-powered ornithopter. The film was nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards and won two, for best writing and best editing in a documentary program or series.

In 2014 we completed the film, Inside Her Sex, about female sexuality and shame. . This production has spawned two other films: Strange Bedfellows a film exploring the relationship between pornography and sex education, and WHILE YOU WERE GONE about the iconic pornographer Candida Royalle’s search for her mother.

Dimestore has also produced two short films of note, Documentary Bootcamp and Momentum.
