You may also be aware that the Harper government just recently slashed $45 million in arts and culture funding, making the present and (unless things change) coming years an incredibly difficult time for independent artists to receive any funding for their projects. Then there is always the complex reality of trying to get funding for a documentary that is not character based and is ‘anti establishment’. Until now this project has been completely self-financed. Boban and I are very committed to this project and I very much believe that the time for a documentary that touches on these topics is in urgent need. Once completed, in the spring we plan on visiting communities across the country, screening the doc and having discussion nights. Please let me know if you would be interested in organizing a screening in your classroom or school, community space or library or home.
In order to finance the next few months of production to finish the documentary we are asking that people and organizations pre purchase a copy of the dvd for a suggested amount of 15$.
We are also asking that if you are a member of any peace or social justice group to consider becoming a financial sponsor of the film.
If you are interested in pre-ordering a copy of ‘Myths for Profit: Canada’s Role in Industries of War and Peace’ you can send money via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or do an email bank transfer if you have a Canadian bank account, or you can go the old school way of cheque in the mail to
