"We Are" Ford City Film to Premiere February 2013

The count down to the premiere of We Are is on........

The Ford City Redevelopment Committee, BIA and Residents in Action are proud to announce that the film We Are will be premiered in February 2013 at an event hosted in the Ford City area.

The film, shot over the Spring of 2012 in the Ford City area, captures the vibrancy and community spirit that endures in this historic neighbourhood. Local filmmakers Tim Swaddling and Jarrod Ferris partnered with Matt Kraus and the Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal to highlight the uplifting transformation Ford City is experiencing. Their filmmaking mission took them deep into the heart of the community where they captured moments of joy, pride and everyday life in Ford City.

The film was made possible by a small grant from the University of Windsor's Social Work Student Association. The film crew, Tim, Jarrod and Matt put in many volunteer hours to ensure the final product was polished and would be a point of pride for residents and community members.

The premiere event will feature a live performance by an impressive, internationally known, local talent! Please stay tuned for more information including where you can buy your tickets.

Thank you for your interest, hope to see you in Ford City soon!
