Over the past seven years the process of filmmaking at Little Mountain has become the product, and a community has come together to tell its story. With that in mind, it’s time to acknowledge those who have pushed it forward, from within the community, and beyond it.
First, I would like to acknowledge the generous support of the BRITISH COLUMBIA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS, whose financial support has energized The Little Mountain Project in many significant ways since the beginning, and I would like also to thank the many generous supporters of the Little Mountain Film Crowdfunding Campaign. Over the months of May and June 2014 they gave me the faith and financing to begin to push the Little Mountain feature documentary film toward the finishing line.
There is always work to do so feel free to contact me, if there is anything you think you could add to the ongoing process, or the story of The Little Mountain Housing Project.
Here are some of the many people who have contributed to our success.
