|Dear friends, family and colleagues,
This Tuesday, Canary – a documentary film about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – was one of seven film teams to present at Good Pitch New York, a gathering of foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands, technology, government, and media to forge campaigns around films addressing leading social issues. Even though we had been preparing for four months, it’s one of those things you can’t quite understand until you live it. It was incredible!
Highlights: A grant from the Fledgling Fund for a virtual reality experience, a chance to meet a longtime mentor in person, and new support from the Harnisch Foundation and New York Women in Film and Television. (Actually, everything that happened was a highlight! So keep reading.)
