film stillEveryone participates - everyone has a voice - and the message is revolutionary.

Filmmaker-in-Residence is an innovative documentary experiment from the National Film Board of Canada. It started in 2004 with the placement of media maker Katerina Cizek "in residence" at Toronto's inner-city St. Michael's Hospital, renowned for innovation in patient care and research.

This groundbreaking project in media intervention integrates documentary filmmaking, "videobridging," photoblogs, digital storytelling and more to produce a "collective intelligence" approach that investigates complex health issues and the integral role of creative collaboration across disciplines and hierarchies to smash social and political barriers.

What happens when homeless women become mothers? How can doctors from Toronto work hand-in-hand with HIV activists in rural Africa? What can people who have made recurrent suicide attempts learn from each other? These and other issues - intricate, difficult and delicate - come alive in this 80-minute documentary, featuring seven distinct yet interconnected experiments in collaborative media. The Seven Interventions of Filmmaker-in-Residence charts the project's five-year history, investigating the creative process from within as media makers join health care workers to reflect on ethics, interventionist filmmaking and shifting cinematic genres. This DVD features two hours of bonus features, including an interview with George Stoney, executive producer of the NFB's landmark Challenge for Change program.
