Glitter’s Wild Women follows Hannah and Sophie, two sisters living in solitude on their eighty acres of farmland. Set in stunning Prince Edward County, the sisters experience a supernatural life as they harvest and smoke glitter that grows in the forest, developing strength beyond their imagination. As they casually accept their new found abilities, the youngest sister, Sophie, gets increasingly infatuated with filming it all. Together, they come up with an idea to host a ‘film festival’ on their farmland and invite all of the residents from the closest town. However, people from the closest town seem reluctant to attend – for a very good reason.

Hailing from North Vancouver, B.C, Roney is an emerging filmmaker with an interesting education. She originally moved to Toronto in 2010 to play for the Ryerson Women’s Basketball team. Shortly after her first season, she retired from basketball and began taking classes at Second City. She was accepted into the Television Program (RTA) at Ryerson and excelled creatively on projects both in front of and behind the camera – specifically, her TARA-nominated feature script Hey, Dad, and her role in Kemosabe (Dir. Charles Hutchings), which won best actress at the 2014 RUFF awards. After graduating, she gave birth to a semi- autobiographical web-series project, Cheap Whine. This web- series is, in its way, an appropriate representation of Roney’s love for finding humour in simple places and shaping them into entertaining, bite- sized portions. Her love of cinematic television has lured her into the world of film more than she had anticipated, and she’s excited to continue telling stories through many mediums.
