Hello Cool World helping create a

By Katherine Dodds On June 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

In February we started working on our Hello Cool World vision. One strong area we felt we wanted to work on was to really make our online store a successful way to raise money and a new model for funding the campaigning efforts of our friends. As our 'regulars' will know - with the makers of The Corporation film,we are working on building a movement to change the corporate form, funded by our online store. With The Corporation, however, we are still only re-sellers of the DVDS, which we have to buy from our distributors, which doesn't leave much for the campaign.

Right now, we have a unique opportunity now to expand this work. We are working with the filmmakers of the award winning 65_RedRoses, a moving documentary about Eva Markvoort's struggle with Cystic Fibrosis. Without fully realizing it, Eva started a global campaign for organ donation in the spring of 2007, while she was waiting on a transplant list for new lungs.

We see the need for a new way for social cause filmmakers to distribute their films. Like 65_RedRoses. So we are also building a 'fair trade' DVD distribution network that can share profits for the causes and the creators of the films we support. 65_RedRoses is the beginning!

Visible Evidence In Brazil

Earlier this month I traveled to Sao Paulo and Rio, in Brazil, to participate in the Visible Evidence Documentary Conference. Invited by Concordia Communications Professors Liz Miller and Tim Scwhab to be part of their panel "Branding Politics — Emerging Forms of Distributing Political Documentaries", this was an opportunity to reflect on what we are trying to achieve with HelloCoolWorld and our work as idea distributors and net workers. (Or "discourse networkers" in more academic parlance!) Thanks to a travel grant from the Canada Council I was able to attend this conference and it was a real opportunity to think our collective project through in an inspiring setting.
