Drum roll please….

We have some lovely news for you today!

Living on the Edge has been accepted into Canada’s largest environmental film festival, Planet in Focus, within the category Best Canadian documentary.

We are over the moon! But wait, there’s more!

We finally have our official trailer. Actually we have two (both languages). Check them out!


Et pour nous ami(e)s francophones, voici la version avec les sous-titres en français


Joan and I will be traveling to Toronto from 07-09 November 2014 to participate in our first film festival ever – wow!! And yet, we both know deep in our hearts that without the poetry and magic of our brilliant film editor, Martin Charron, our film would have turned out very differently indeed. We also owe many thanks to our sound editor, Robin Servant, for his final sound edit.

And the good news doesn’t stop there: we are blessed to have two amazing women – Lucie Poirier and Kim Cornelissen – both powerhouses in their own unique ways, who have been absolutely instrumental in taking over the conception and logistics of launching the pre-screening of Living on the Edge right here in Rimouski.

These women came just in time because Joan and me are…..well…. we’re running out of energy (renewable of course, not the fossil kind)! Un gros merci à Lucie et Kim. Votre soutien est tellement apprécié!

Details about the pre-screening will be released next week.

But for now, please mark your calendars for Thursday, November 6th, at 19h in the Salle Georges Beaulieu, Cégep de Rimouski.

And in case you thought that we had forgotten about you: to all our friends living and working along the Gaspé Coast and on the Magdalen Islands, we are determined to take Living on the Edge back to the coastal communities profiled in the film. In order to do so, we are making one final appeal for donations to support this last phase of post-production: printing, distribution and promotion. If you haven’t already done so, please click on the Donate tab above to make a contribution, no matter how small, to help get the word out about climate change in eastern Québec.

Hope to see you all at the pre-screening in Rimouski on the 6th of November.

  1. Susan this is a terrific trailer. Congratulations! I’ll just miss you in Tronna as i fly back to Malibu the day before. If you’re in shigawake before, I’d love to entertain you. Oh, I go by bus to Montreal the day after thanksgiving, and we could maybe have a coffee as it stops for 1/2 an hour I think.
    I’m your fan! Paul Almond, O.C.
