Campaign Description

Your Boost will support: - Lethbridge Living Magazine Staff (Writers, Editors, Photographers, Graphic Designers, Student Interns) - Lethbridge Living Film Festival. Stories from around the world that explore topics relavent to our community. - Lethbridge Living Films. Lethbridge Living Films will be made into documentaries. Lethbridge Living has been an appreciated presence in Lethbridge since 1994. 2020 could be the end of a tradition without your support. Did you know it costs 6$ to produce one issue of Lethbridge Living in 2019? Local businesses have paid for 60% of that cost, the publisher paid for the other 40%. The publication has been available at no cost to readers. If you love Lethbridge join us! These funds will provide capital to develop opportunities to hire staff from Lethbridge. We'll reach new audiences with new stories. Lethbridge Living needs community support to serve the community for another 25 years.

Lethbridge Living: A Local Tradition

This campaign will allow Lethbridge Living to grow and create job opportunities. Advertising cover some but no all of the expenses that make Lethbridge Living available.

I am working very hard to include a greater diversity of voices on the pages of the magazine. It has been a challenge in more ways than I had anticipated.  I took over as Publisher in 2017 and I promised advertisers that it would be business as usual for at least the first year as Publisher. It has been business as usual for two years and I have learned that print needs to be supported by other revenue streams. 

I am steadfast in my resolve to make this a new era for Lethbridge Living.  It's a costly undertaking that I am honoured to face. I know that in order to succeed I need to stay focused on what I know and love. I know and love film and fundraising for culture so in this new era at Lethbridge Living. Those who know me well will attest, I'm pretty open and really positive and cheerful about what any day brings.

I am optimistic about the many bright and financially viable future of Lethbridge Living.

Having support like yours is all-important. It will be a game-changer.

Let's put stories on at the centre.

-- Thanks for your support!

I was born and adopted and raised in Ottawa. I began my career working for the National Film Board of Canada in my early 20s in the mid-1990s, I was a national marketing manager. It was my job to sell VHS of documentaries. I loved it. I left that very secure and well-paid job because the life my interest in being an entrepreneur found me. I made my first independent short film in 1999. It made a splash, back in the day (I am delighted that on its 20th anniversary it's being rediscovered by a new generation and it's getting me back on the film festival circuit this year) and to pay the bills I continued freelance marketing in the film industry in Montreal, Toronto and New York with Miramax and later the Weinstein company. I did freelance PR for TIFF and Hot Docs. I moved to Lethbridge from Montreal with my partner who is an artist and prof at the U of L. It has been an eye-opening 14 years. Upon our arrival in 2005 I made a film with the NFB and CBC that won a few awards. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1147703/ https://www.nfb.ca/film/24_days_in_brooks/ . I then was a prof at the U of L teaching film production. I enjoy doing more than teaching. The creative economy in Lethbridge does not really support filmmaking in a way that pays artists to build careers solely in film so I re-envision my own career to tell stories as part of fund development campaigns which I had done for film festivals. I was recruited by the Calgary Stampede to craft the story that was the basis for raised $100M+ then I did the same for Lethbridge College. Making the mid-life leap to print media from film has been an adventure. I'm so honoured to publich Lethbridge Living - and I feel I'm just getting started. I hope you'll come along!
