Cannes Film Festival Winners Cross Canada for Charity, in Calgary Monday on the Zip Line!

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2007) - A group of students, and an instructor and his wife entered the Documentary Adobe Film Challenge at the Cannes Film Festival in France this year and won! Their documentary was based on, "what can you do in one day to make a difference?" They set out to raise funds for ALS or better known as Lou Gehrigs disease. They raised $530.62. After the amazing response to the video they thought wow, imagine what we could raise if we set out across the country and stopped in each major city. Well, that is exactly what they did. Armed with a bright orange, Harley Davidson motorcycle with side car, and a Winnebago full of film students, they set out to film a cross Canada trip to raise funds for ALS patients. They began in New Foundland, and are in Calgary on Monday October 15th.
