Guest Blogger Mike Jacko  has joined the team from the Circles of Understanding project. HCW Is thrilled to have his help with the conference and to be working with him on the new COU project too. Here's his panorama pic of the tweet team in action! 

LIGHTS! CAMERA! TWITTER!

The Hello Cool World team has been full-on tweeting, and filming the confernce! Many interviews have been done, and many are still to come tomorrow! Saw an iphone on a tripod, went to the Indigitization workshop, learnt about some of the challenges of entering into the digital world, checked out the Online Safety workshop, and also checked out Cross-media Story-telling workshop facilitated by the amazing Cease Wyss. I also missed several other awesome workshops because they all run at the same time :(   The conference has so much information I can barely keep up.  Looking forward to the next few days, can't wait to hear more ideas from First Nations people about Indigitizing their communities! Exciting!! - MJ

Hello Cool World was "in The House" for First Nations Health Conference

Please BOOST (aka vote for) our proposal to IdeaBOOST - it's for a platform to help us do all our work and campaigns! Help us reach our goal of 5000 boosts by midnight April 25!

in March 2013 Hello Cool World attended the annual Communicable Disease Workshop (hosted by First Nations Inuit Health Branch of Health Canada), which was held at the Coast Hotel in Vancouver. Hello Cool World Intern Maria Martin helped us make this short video blog from interviews we conducted at the conference. She also updated our First Nations Health section of out Hello Cool World Media site.

Pictured: Maria and David at the conference with our Hello Cool World info table about our projects. Below Maria recaps her thoughts on community health and interning with HCW! 

As a nursing student, I enjoy community health. Community healthy nursing enables me to interact and collaborate with people where they live, work, and play to promote health. I have the privilege to encounter people in their realm rather than in a hospital setting. I go to their community to explore and discover their norms, values, beliefs, environment, people etc that shape their health and quality of life. As a result, I had the opportunity to coordinate, collaborate and cooperate with a variety of partners, disciplines and sectors to promote, protect, and preserve health, prevent diseases and injury. I learned a lot about advocacy, health marketing and advertising, health public policies, population health etc in the process.

Occupy Love: The beginning is here!

By Colette On April 22, 2013 | 0 Comments

Occupy Love banner

Help us reach our goal of 5000 boosts by midnight April 25!

Hello Cool World is excited to be working on the media relations for Occupy Love, an inspiring new documentary from award-winning Canadian filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light). Occupy Love explores the cultural uprisings of our time from the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring to the European Summer and environmental protests and asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”.

Check out the trailer HERE.

Occupy Love is being self-distributed by a talented team led by Velcrow and producers Nova Ami and Ian Mackenzie. Their crowd sourced, social media driven approach to distribution is consistent with the theme of the film, which successfully raised $80,000 through the crowd-funding platforms IndieGoGo and Kickstarter! 

The global response to the film has been amazing with over 200 grassroots screenings being self-organized by individuals and organizations in over 25 countries, and more being added every day. The largest community screening so far took place in Porto Allegre, Brazil on April 11th attracting a whopping 1,500 attendees!

We look forward to watching the momentum grow!

Occupy Love marks the completion of Velcrow's Fierce Love Trilogy, a twelve-year journey which began with Scared Sacred, named one of Canada’s Top 10 movies of 2004, and winner of the 2005 Genie (Canadian Academy Award) for best feature documentary. It continued with 2008′s award winning Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action. (We've got a special to buy both these DVDs on our webstore for 40% off.)

We worked on outreach and DVD production for Scared Sacred. As with our work with The Corporation, and The Take, we've been inspired by how films with a social message, can find audiences and inspire those audiences to action. All these films are available on our webstore, and all our profits go to our campaigns, and now also to the distribution platform for social cause media we are developing. Check out our proposal to  CFC's IdeaBOOST program, and please BOOST us, our dream is to better help films like Occupy Love engage with audiences, and to encourage audiences to organize actions as well as screenings.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes along with interviews from leading visionaries including Naomi KleinBill McKibbenJeremy Rifkinbell hooks and Charles Eisenstein

The Occupy Love US theatrical tour starts Friday, May 3, 2013 in New York City, with screenings and special events to follow in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Seattle.

Coming to Canadian theatres starting June 2013! Check out more screenings and opportunities to get involved after the page break...
