Canary is a Paley DocPitch Finalist!

We are thrilled to announce that Canary in a Coal Mine has been selected as one of five finalists in the Paley DocPitch Competition.
What does this mean? On November 16th, we'll get a chance to pitch our film to a committee of executives from USA, A&E, MTV, History, PBS (POV), and an audience of professionals in film and television, gathered at The Paley Center for Media.
The winner receives $5,000 for their film as well as mentorship. While we are a long way from having a finished film to sell, it's a wonderful opportunity to bring the project before a group of filmmakers and industry experts, get early feedback, and build relationships.
So now for the big question: what should we mention in our pitch?

  1. I think you should definitely say something about how important this is for sufferers on a worldwide level and how we can all be connected through technology from our beds and sofas because we are too exhausted to do campaigning like people usually can.
    Without the internet, I wouldn't know about this film being made. This is a way that we can explain what life is like for us and how, no matter what country we live in, sadly we ALL find it difficult to get the care, understanding and help that we need. xx
