I would like to encourage support of our Youth, and Students in the Arts, particularly in Film and Media. Vancouver is termed "Hollywood North", and yet there is limited funding and support for initiatives in this area. Imagine if Kevin Smith, who produced "Clerks", and his blockbuster sequels, after dropping out of Vancouver Film School, had received some support that allowed him to keep his production local. Vancouver would have reaped the benefits, as would any supporter, with their logo on the film at the festivals.
It's good business, and good for our community.
This is not a mandate, but a hope, a dream..
