Mariah Braun

Mariah’s mission in the indie film industry is to amplify the voices of underrepresented individuals and tell stories from a unique point of view. As a Guyanese-Canadian woman and BIPOC filmmaker, Mariah is an underrepresented person, so she gravitates towards others who are also underrepresented. Mariah’s interview subjects appreciate her sensitivity to delicate and uncomfortable topics, trusting her to share their stories in a respectful, authentic way. Mariah bonds with each person she interviews, circling back to her compassionate nature and ability to truly understand another’s perspective.
Mariah’s credits also include producing episodes of the City of Grande Prairie's Opioid Crisis series, a documentary-style awareness campaign centered on the effects of the opioid crisis in Grande Prairie, Alberta, and Undefeated: Journey To The Death Race, a 2021 Alberta Media Production Industry Award (Rosie) finalist. One of Canada’s largest networks, AMI-TV (Accessible Media Inc.) even broadcasted Mariah’s documentary, Kiesha's Story: A Path to Wellness. Her three original documentaries, Life Without Diagnosis, Able, and Kiesha's Story: A Path to Wellness, all focus on the resiliency of the human spirit. Through every film, Mariah shares the stories of others and learns a little more about herself along the way, expanding her visual storytelling expertise.
