We’ve made it to the Huffington Post’s TOP TEN RADICAL GIFTS! We’re listed under “compassion.”
HuffPO columnist Julia Moulden says that our FIR DVD BOX SET “…is the new media equivalent of a book you just can’t put down…Get one for your kid’s school, for your local hospital, your boss, yourself…”
Other gifts list under wisdom, light, kindness, love etc…
Huffington Post, apparently, is the most linked-to blog on the internet.

November is turning out to be our favourite month this year. Tons of unusual of sun - and lots of great events.
We are launching the DVD Box Set Thursday Nov 19th with a reception and short screening. So if you are in Toronto, come join us at 6:30 pm to Innis Hall, 2 Sussex (St. George subway).
And on Friday, FIR is off to Amsterdam for the world’s largest documentary festival IDFA. We’ll be presenting FIR and the new project (cough cough - more soon here about it) to 150 participants of the IDFAcademy. We’ll also be making appearances at a Doc Lab presentation with an awesome new tech company and at an IDFATalks event about people vs. power.
