Dear ST5 Crowd, Supporters and Friends,

After over 3 years making this film while fundraising and writing grants, 2 crowdfunding campaigns, 355 contributors, a whole pile of support from various organizations and individuals, and ol' fashioned blood, sweat and tears...

...Our fundraising thermometer is topped up and we are proud to announce that we are fully funded!

Thermometer - 72K Raised - No Text

We have you all to thank for this.

Our recent funding comes from Telefilm Canada. The funds are a part of the brand new Micro-Budget Program for emerging filmmakers. We are honoured to be among the first-ever recipients of this program.

This fund has exceeded all of our expectations. As a result we are able to increase our original budget and take this film to a whole new level. We cannot overstate how important your support has been. We wouldn’t have been considered for these funds had we not been able to show the incredible support we’ve received from ALL of you. So, THANK YOU!

We have now closed contributions on our site. Our energy and effort can completely shift away from fundraising and grant applications to focus entirely on completing the film and getting it out to as many people as possible. We are focused, excited and more determined than ever to make a film that sparks needed debate and change.
