Media production in flux: crowdfunding to the rescue

If you are an established filmmaker living in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, or Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, you have probably already produced and/or directed more than fifteen projects of your own. Some may be award-winning; several have likely been produced or distributed with major Canadian media players, such as the National Film Board of Canada and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Having established your credentials over the past decade, you seek funding for your next documentary project but cannot secure the support needed by pursuing traditional industry sources.
