The City has partnered with award-winning Aboriginal filmmaker Michelle Derosier and cinematographer Dave Clement of Thunderstone Pictures on the Welcome Project to produce a high-quality, four-part documentary film series and dedicated website that will be used as part of a welcome package.
“This project builds on the positive steps the City of Thunder Bay has already taken to help create a safe and welcoming environment for all people,” said City Clerk John Hannam.
Private sponsorships are being sought to make the project a reality. The projected cost of the entire project is $57,000, with each film addressing specific topics. Various sponsorship levels exist for anyone looking to support this community initiative.
The completed films will be screened at the annual Fall Feast and Festival of Services in September. After that, they will be distributed in the community and beyond for use as educational and training tools.
