Film and Discussion - Nov 15 Revue Cinema

Hello

I am the Yukon director of the feature documentary film All The Time In The World - an inspiring, humorous and family friendly film that explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment.

The film chronicles life's natural unfolding when a family tries to let go of the control that is required in our time-based world and live by the seasons, rather than by the clock. Featuring the insights of three children (aged 10, 8 and 4), the family spends 9 months living in the remote wilderness of the Yukon - leaving modern conveniences and digital technology, including all clocks and watches, behind.

All The Time In The World will be having a special screening at the Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Ave) on Nov 15th at 6:45 pm (doors open at 6:15) followed by a conversation/Q&A with myself (coming from the Yukon) and Toronto author Christina Crook ("The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in A Wired World) moderated by Kristy Woudstra the editor of Huffington Post Parents on the themes of making space, slowing down and modelling healthy tech habits for our kids.

I thought that the Fern Avenue Public School staff, students and families might be interested in this event which is right in your neighbourhood.

More information about the film, as well as reviews, can be found at www.allthetimeintheworld.ca


The film has charmed adults and kids alike - in fact it has played to many elementary and middle school aged audiences and they have really engaged with and enjoyed the film. There is even a free downloadable curriculum guide available that was produced by Hot Docs for Schools.

On the Festival Circuit All The Time In The World has won 20 Awards, including 9 Audience Choice Awards as well as 5 Youth Awards and many Environmental Film Festival Awards. The film finished in the “Top 20 Audience Picks” at the 2015 Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto and was part of Hot Docs for Schools in 2016.

8/8 Stars - “a heart-swellingly wonderful account of togetherness, ingenuity, creativity and invention, and a telling look at how letting go of technology can strengthen – not compromise –connection.”- MoviePie Hot Docs 2015 Reviews, Toronto

“A magnificent film...Anyone watching this will have to ask, what is life all about, why am I in such a hurry, what is it that gives us true happiness. Thank you for making a film that demands that we answer those questions.”
- David Suzuki

The youth jury at the Reel to Real International Film Festival for Youth in Vancouver Canada had this to say:
“Most of the films that make you think, show you how miserable life can be elsewhere, but All the Time in the World showed us how simple and beautiful life can be if we make a few life style changes.”

And at another film festival in Canada, a 9 yo came up to me at the end of the screening and gave me a hug saying:
"I think this film is going to change my life. I am going to spend more time outside and less time on my iPad.”

I think the families and staff of your school would really enjoy the film. Feel free to share the information (and the link http://www.jomobook.com/film/ ) with your school community. I have also attached a poster, that you could print and post it at your school, if that would be of interest.

Thanks so much,
