During the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Andrew Lavigne followed a group of various social media users around the city to see how the digital world impacted the Games and their daily lives. The result is With Glowing Hearts. A unique documentary that, being funded by grassroots campaigns and screenings by donation, is finally ready for its official premiere.
The premieres will take place over the course of a few days in select cities across Canada:
Montreal: Friday, September 23, 2011 at 7:00pm at Cinema du Parc
Vancouver: Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 7:00pm at SFU Woodward’s
Toronto: Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 7:00pm at the Revue Cinema
Ottawa: Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 6:30pm at Mayfair Theatre
Kris Krug, who is in the film, will have a photography exhibition in the lobby of each theatre prior to the screenings. I also have a few cameos in the documentary along with John Biehler, Dave Olson, and a feature on April Smith.
If you would like to attend the Vancouver premiere this Saturday, tickets are currently available for $10. The documentary channel has also picked up With Glowing Hearts and it will run over the next three years starting with its television premiere November 21, 2011 (check local listings).
