Katherine Dodds AKA "Kat" is the founder of Good Company Communications and HelloCoolWorld.com. Trained in renegade advertising & branding through her work with Adbusters in the '90s, Kat's early induction into the possibilities of the web-world was inspired by the term hypertext, which she immediately found comforting. She is dedicated to cause-related communication and to the development and use of tools that promote democratic processes.
Aside from the films, one of the greatest things about Hot Docs is the people you meet. Last night I had the pleasure of hanging out with some of the industry's luminaries as well as some exciting up-and-comers.

Colette joined Hello Cool World team back in 2003 and was a key organizer for The Corporation and The Take's grassroots outreach efforts across North America.
After being inspired by the organizing and awareness building potential of the internet and social issue films, she returned to school to study Communications and sharpen her skills.
Once graduating, Colette returned to Hello Cool World once again as a grassroots campaign consultant. She is now the Director of Distribution for Hello Cool World's new fair trade distribution arm.

I'm at the Making Your Media Matter conference in DC listening to a panel on Money and Mission. Interesting times to try to promote and produce social issue work. I'm networking to find support for our own Campaign 4 Corporate Harm Reduction, for our work with Bevel Up, and also to promote the recent Sundance hit, Prom Night in Mississippi.
