THE LONG AWAITED VANCOUVER LAUNCH OF WATERLIFE -- THIS WEEKEND! Says Mark Achbar (The Corporation) "As an exec. producer on Waterlife, I had the pleasure and privilege to support and help shape this award-winning film, and to observe the working process of its director, Kevin McMahon. From the outset, Kevin had an exceptionally clear vision of what he wanted to do, and the finished work reflects the precision of his intention and command of his craft. Waterlife was deservedly awarded the Special Jury Prize at this year's Hot Docs, the most prestigious documentary film festival in North America. It was also recently invited by Michael Moore to screen at his film festival in Traverse City later this month." Special Events this weekend in Vancouver go to OurWaterlife.com for updates!

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.
Get ready! This Friday (May 15) Velcrow Ripper's award-winning film FIERCE LIGHT will open in Toronto, Montreal

I'm happy to report news from Mark Leiren-Young's blog about the Green Chain being available free online in celebration of Earth Day.
Big news for Green Chain fans around the world (outside of Canada). The Green Chain is now available online NOW at a website near you to celebrate Earth Day! The Green Chain is a film about the conflicts between people on both sides of the battle who love trees — and are willing to risk anything to protect their personal visions of the forest. (will be available on Dailymotion, Hulu and YouTube)" (Note: Canadian's the only one of these that will work is YouTube).
