As the name suggests, DIMESTORE PRODUCTIONS INC. is a boutique production company based in Vancouver, BC. Established in 2001 by Sheona McDonald with a focus 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. Then we produced Capturing A Short Life a captivating, poignant and award-winning film about families dealing with infant loss. In 2011 we completed an hour-long film for documentary, When Dreams Take Flight that explores why humans are compelled to fly like birds. In 2014, we completed Inside Her Sex, a feature length documentary about female sexuality and shame.
Dimestore has also produced two short films of note, Documentary Bootcamp and Momentum.
Dimestore currently has one film in post-production, While You Were Gone, about adult film star and feminist porn pioneer Candida Royalle’s search for her mother. We also have two films in development, Strange Bedfellows about pornography and sex education; and a film about men and masculinity.
