Filmmaker Natasha Heschélle Joins The Netflix-BANFF Diversity of Voices Initiative
Toronto, On – Natasha Heschélle is a Zimbabwe born, Canadian actor and filmmaker. At a very young age it was apparent to everyone that Heschélle’s talents and determination could not be contained. At seven, the budding artist entered a talent show, where she danced to Destiny’s child, winning over sixteen- and seventeen-year-old. The creative gene could not be denied and was on full display in everything the multi-talented Heschélle put her mind too. Taking in every lesson learned and molding them with her own ideas and convictions, the young actor/ filmmaker has never looked back. Since making her professional acting debut, Heschélle has appeared in commercials, film, and TV projects. Committed to the direction of her craft, Heschélle is careful with her choices and doesn’t waiver. It’s important to be heard. Part of the reason for becoming a filmmaker, was to create projects for actors that look like her, roles that are respectful, challenging and purposeful.
Heschélle, has been accepted into the The Netflix-BANFF Diversity of Voices Initiative. The program is a national training and access program for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color creators and producers. Heschélle understands the importance of knowledge. The Netflix-BANFF Diversity of Voices Initiative will listen to the voices & share knowledge that will improve and sustain the young actor/filmmaker as a valued part of the industry. A gift.
