Surrey based thriller film, ‘Odd Girl’ in the running for Telus StoryHive Grant

Surrey based thriller film, ‘Odd Girl’ in the running for Telus StoryHive Grant

Rami Kahlon, a local writer and actor, is bringing a new thriller film to Surrey. For the past 7 years, she has had a successful career as an actor, recently working on “Noelle,” opposite Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and on “Tom & Grant,” opposite Tom Cavanagh and Grant Gustin. Having worked on such networks as The CW, Walt Disney Pictures, and FOX, she is now passionate about contributing to local content that represents her city and its diverse population.

Her script, “Odd Girl”, was an official selection and semi-finalist for the internationally held “Eat Crow Horror Scriptwriting Competition,” which has inspired her to bring the script to life. Based on a suburban school in Surrey, where ostracism is commonplace, the film is a thriller drama that revolves around two friends who fall victim to the obsession of the odd girl out.

But, one of the friends quickly realizes that the repercussions of excluding others takes on a whole new meaning when the one left out isn’t who, or what, they seem to be. She intends to create a bone-chilling story that fantasizes the consequences of the all too familiar phenomena of exclusion in high schools.

“Odd Girl” has recently been accepted into the Telus Storyhive competition and is vying for a $10,000 grant to have it made. Her team consists of young local female artists from Surrey and the lower mainland who are passionate about putting social issues, local content, and ethnic diversity on the map. However, to advance in the competition and get the $10,000 grant, votes are necessary, and they believe that the best way to get this is to make their story and purpose public through the Surrey community.


Telus Storyhive grants are awarded to those who bring in the most votes. Let’s show that Surrey has relatable and interesting stories of its own. Voting runs from Tuesday, April 3rd to Friday, April 6th on the Storyhive website. Go to the Odd Girl Facebook page and like it to keep up with updates on the production and help show Surrey in the best light through art.

Support ‘Odd Girl’ by casting  your vote, every day!
