Film {Films That Move}

Films That Move Hungry for Change Collage

In 2009, I founded Films That Move, a global social change film series that brings together people from across the sectors to connect and collaborate in their communities. I screened UK civic engagement documentary, Us Now to demonstrate the transformational impact of the internet across business, government and society.

Over 300 people attended each screening, and included Toronto Mayor David Miller’s announcement of the city’s Open Data initiative.

With international interest in Us Now, I launched a global screening project with other social innovation organizations around the world, taking Us Now to Portland, San Francisco, Tokyo, Toronto, Vancouver, Columbia, the Netherlands and Argentina.

I’m currently directing a film series pilot, and cross sector education and fundraising program for Toronto’s food sustainability community. In 2012, I organized the Toronto location for the celebration of United Nations World Food Day in partnership with the Centre for Social Innovation Regent Park, Daniels Spectrum and Food Forward.
