Ingrid Veninger has come on as an executive producer on the feature film project Queen Tut. Having personally produced 10 features over the course of the last 15 years, Veninger has earned the title of Canada's Indie Film Queen.
The news comes just as Veninger and producer Shant Joshi are set to attend the Whistler Film Festival this weekend for the Western Canadian premiere of the well-travelled fem-queer coming-of-age Porcupine Lake, production managed by Joshi, and the World Premiere of behind-the-scenes documentary The Other Side of Porcupine Lake.
Producer Shant Joshi has also been invited by the Whistler Film Festival to bring Queen Tut for their Power Pitch program where he will be pitching to executives from Paramount Pictures, Myriad Pictures, and Bell Media.
As an executive producer, Veninger will provide oversight on the continued development and financing of Queen Tut. Her manifesto: "Nothing is impossible!"
