The Locals (video)

Another in the Spotlight series of short films I created for Word11, Toronto’s 24-hour blogging festival, The Locals highlights two of the people responsible for the community website jane-finch.com, which covers the Toronto community near Jane Street and Finch Avenue.

What really struck me about Jane-Finch.com is that it challenges traditional notions perpetuated by Toronto media which make it seem that accentuate the neighbourhood’s crime. This community site tries to represent all aspects of the community, and give hope to those living near Jane and Finch.
