About

ABOUT

Our goal with Local Ladies is simply to tell stories about the kick-ass women in our community. 

Founded in 2016, Local Ladies has interviewed female entrepreneurs and creatives all around Ontario. Not only are we producing online content, but we have also screened two short films in Kitchener and Guelph, raising money for Women in Crisis in the process. Our next project is Local Ladies x Toronto, a documentary film featuring women in Toronto telling stories about resilience and vulnerability. 

Our events and projects up until this point have been funded completely out of pocket, but Toronto is a much more expensive place to arrange a screening. As much as I would like to rent out a theatre using my own money, it is just not a feasible option. That is why I am asking for YOUR help.  

THE FILM

This film is filled to the brim with stories from Toronto women about resilience and vulnerability.

Some of the women in the film so far include:

Anne Donahue - Writer, person, and author of Nobody Cares (September 2018)

Casie Stewart - Content creator and expert in digital media.

Danita Steinberg and Emily Gagne - Creators of the podcasts ‘What About Meryl?’ and ‘We Really Like Her’.

Bailey Parnell - Digital marketer, businesswoman, and founder of SkillsCamp.

Morgan Paige Melbourne - Concert pianist.

Renishaki Kamal - Founder of Fidget Toys Ltd.  

And SO many more incredible women!

THE SCREENING

With the $5000 raised from this Kickstarter, we are going to rent a theatre and host a screening event this fall in Toronto. The venue has yet to be determined but when it is, you will be the first to know. Here's what we do know for sure:

  • There will be snacks.
  • There will be an abundance of girl power and opportunities to connect and network with women in the community.
  • ALL proceeds from ticket sales (aside from the tickets included in the Kickstarter rewards) will be donated to the Toronto Distress Centre.
  • We are aiming for a screening date in October of 2018.

YOUR SUPPORT

Listen, support is support and we appreciate any help we can get. If you can't help us financially, there are other ways to support this initiative! 

  • Create a small video talking about what resilience means to you and share it on social media with the hashtag #LocalLadiesxToronto.
  • Share this Kickstarter with your friends and family!
  • Do you know how to color correct in post-production? We need some help making the film look all clean and put together before it hits the big screen.
  • Have another idea on how you can support us? Send us an email localladiesca@gmail.com!

Risks and challenges

We've started production on the film. We're working on it throughout the summer and although we want to have the screening in October, we also have to work around theatre schedules. However, no matter what the schedule may be, we are dedicated to hosting a screening, we just don't 100% know what the date may be yet.
