The Corporation -- Next Generation!

By Katherine Dodds On October 03, 2011 | 1 Comments

Don't let the corporations own you. Occupy Your Future!

We're excited to be starting to focus test the new cut of The Corporation film for high shools with teachers and students who want to help us relaunch the film to activate a new generation of Corporation fans. (We hope).

We are calling on students and teachers to help us launch Corporation clubs and a social media campaign across North America. Check out the video we did with a Grade 8 class in Essex Ontario!

Check out the latest issue of POV, Canada's documentary magazine. We've got an ad for new educational version of The Corporation.

Hello Cool World has re-launched our webstore and is developing "Fair Trade DVD Distribution" so that we can put our profits from the store into campaigns, like the Campaign 4 Corporate Harm Reduction, and Eva Markvoort's campaign for Organ Donation (65_RedRoses) through the sales of the films.

Supporting DVD distribution:

By Katherine Dodds On June 18, 2010 | 0 Comments

65_REDROSES DVD Pre-sale for $19.99 until June 21In February we started working on our Hello Cool World vision, which includes how we want to mobilize Corporation supporters. 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. 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. 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 and connect them to the causes they want to promote. 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.
