We”re really excited to announce that our television premiere is just around the corner now on Monday, November 21st on CBC”s documentary channel, 8pm EST/11pm PST. Although normally a subscription channel, some fortunate timing has us airing during their free access month, so everyone across the country should be able to watch it no problem. If you”ve already seen the feature length cut of the film, this will be your chance to see the slightly condensed TV version which has some changes to it. Please follow this link to find where your local cable carrier lists the channel. If you have a chance to watch it, please leave us some feedback in the comments section.

That”s right, as if you needed any more confirmation that Toronto is indeed the Centre of the Universe, then look no further than the fact that those lucky son-of-a-guns get a second screening of our film. Well not Toronto exactly, it”ll be taking place in Thornhill, just north of the city, and I guess therefore just north of the Center of the Universe. The fact that we”re playing this particular multiplex carries some nostalgic weight with me as it”s one where I saw many movies as a teen, so it”s neat that now we”re playing there too.
Where: Rainbow Cinemas Promenade Mall
When: Sunday, October 23rd, 10am
Tickets at the door or online at wghthornhill.eventbrite.com

Thanks to all those who made it out to our screenings all across Canada. It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet some new friends. We are truly humbled by the reaction to our film and the support we continue to get. This was a GIGANATIC effort for Jon and I which was only made possible by the generosity we received from so many.
Seeing the marquee in Ottawa at the Mayfair Theatre was a pretty cool moment…and really brought it home for me. A big thx to you all. We are now excited about airing on Documentary Channel in Canada. For those who have seen the film to date or have purchased a copy…this will be a new 52 min version. We cut almost 20 mins out!! The 1st air date is Nov. 21st 2011. Doc. Channel is 110 on Shaw & 325 on Rogers.

We”re very proud to announce the cross-Canada theatrical presentations of the film which will be taking place September 23-25th. We”re looking forward to bringing it back to the great venue at SFU Woodwards locally and are excited about the opportunity to present it to audiences out side Vancouver. In fact we”re sending Andrew out on a little tour to accompany the film so we hope that you”ll come to say hi and let us know what you thought of the film. We”re also excited by the fact that other cities should keep their ears open for future announcements, and if you”re interested in bringing the film to your hometown, let us know.

We are excited to announce the film is finished and available to purchase! You can click here or on the Buy the Film link to get your DVD. This is the full 72 min. theatrical version.
It’s been a busy few weeks here at WGH. Producer Jon Ornoy took our freshly minted DVD’s to the HotDocs festival in Toronto for “Schmoozing, selling, ambushing, talking, pitching, networking and a bit of sleep somewhere in between”. With any luck we should have news for you shortly about broadcasts and screenings!
NV#11-seven for seven!
We also attended Northern Voice 2011. The 7th annual two-day, non-profit personal blogging and social media conference held in Vancouver, Canada on May 13-14, 2011. It was great to run into old friends and meet new ones. Dave Olson was speaking during a session of PhotoCamp about how his time in Japan influenced his creativity. He also shared some great pics he took while living there in 1993. It was also great to be able to present a copy of the film to Dustin Sacks, our first contributor and the one who got the ball rollin’. One of the more exciting moments at this years conference was April Smith’s Keynote address! April spoke about ‘Storytelling From the Heart of the City’ and her unique and honest perspective on local issues in the DTES. It was a very moving and inspiring keynote. Thx April!
This was also a chance for us to catch up with the key contributors to our film and we look forward to sharing those stories with you shortly. Stay tuned!!
