Transform Homelessness Advocacy Watch (THAW) documentary distribution
The Committee to End Homelessness in Victoria - Non-Profit - www.homelessnation.org
The Committee to End Homelessness in Victoria, understands housing as a human right and is producing the documentary film: ˜Transform Homelessness Advocacy Watch" (THAW). THAW explores homelessness by illustrating the interconnection of mental health, policing, housing, and poverty.
Free Range funds would enable filmmakers from the streets to reveal the contradiction between the tourist-city image of Victoria, BC and marginalized homeless individuals. THAW empowers participants to tell their stories about homelessness, stigma, discrimination, and poverty. Grant funds will be used for: global distribution (online, film festivals, education), entrance fees for festivals, provide honorariums to film contributors, and in post-production phases to create DVDs.
