She directed the TV pilot for Scrounger, which was nominated for a Gemini in the Best Drama category, won the Saskatchewan Showcase Best Drama award, and earned a Best Director nomination.

Her feature screenplay currently in development Interspecies Family Therapy won the 2015 From Our Dark Side competition from Women in Film and Television, sponsored by Telefilm, Creative BC and Superchannel.

Carleen turned the camera on herself in the feature-length documentary Heavy Heart Laughs, using stand-up comedy to recover from trauma with humour.

Her feature screenplay Pearl’s Cut & Curl was the winner of a Praxis Centre for Screenwriting fellowship and was selected to represent Canada for the prestigious Hartley-Merrill International Screenwriting Award where it received honourable mention.

Another feature screenplay webscene was short listed for the Accessible Award by the Slamdance Film Festival.
