Design Canada – Summer tour complete & digital release info

Posted by Jessica Edwards (Creator)

Hi backers!

I am currently writing you after completing our final stop on the summer/fall tour in Denver, Colorado. After premiering I’m Toronto on June 13th, Design Canada went on to screen over 50 times from Charlottetown to Victoria and everywhere-in-between. For a small indie film from Canada, this is no small feat and we couldn't have done this without you!

Now that the tour is complete the focus shifts to the digital release and to get you all a copy of the film! I am in the process of finalizing a few very minor tweaks and clearing one final piece of archival, in order to ensure the film will have the strongest legacy possible. We are pushing for a late November release (worldwide) and will confirm this date very soon.

If you need to yell at me for the delayed release, I understand, and will take it. I know many of you are very eager to see the film and believe me I am equally as excited to get the film to you. After the 6 year journey to complete this film I cannot wait to have it available worldwide. Thanks for sticking with us through the final stretch.

      I would like to yell, (or at least say very loudly) you folks are doing great work, keep it up and we look forward to seeing the finished product.

      Saw it during the Toronto Screening and was very moved. Can't wait to own a copy.

      Hope you are considering submitting it to the Academy for Best Documentary Feature. ;)
