The Clean Bin Project

Is it possible to live completely waste free? In this multi-award winning, festival favourite, partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker examination of the problem waste.  Described as An Inconvenient Truth meets Super Size Me, The Clean Bin Project features laugh out loud moments, stop motion animations, and unforgettable imagery - this film is a fun and inspiring call to individual action that speaks to crowds of all ages.
 

FIXED!

Fixed! is a lighthearted look at the folks behind the Repair Café Toronto, a group of volunteers who will fix your broken items...for free. This short documentary won the 2016 Hot Docs Short Film Pitch competition.
