The Social Shift Screening & Panel Discussion

Entrepreneurs at not-for-profit and for-profit organizations have found that doing good in the community can also be good for business. Experience an inspiring movie before a dynamic discussion with 5 panel speakers leading social innovation here in South Georgian Bay. Hear how these and other distant ideas have been paired to create social impact: rock concerts and nutritious food, fresh produce protecting women from domestic violence, pasta and corporate responsibility.

Join Georgian College's Social Enterprise Network of Central Ontario (senco) and partners for a screening of The Social Shift, a documentary on social enterprise businesses across Canada. A local panel discussion on social impact in our communities will follow the screening, complimentary refreshments will be provided.

John Cardillo Jr. - Having lived in Brampton until 2014, John came to Collingwood with his mother and younger brother. First gaining notoriety for a 2016 speech on the impact domestic abuse has on children who witness it, John travelled all over Ontario - speaking at high schools, summer camps, charitable events, and even on television. John's devotion to helping victims of abuse went hand in hand with his love of filmmaking. Along with a group of talented students, John lead the production of a feature film titled Senior Year and in the process made history as this film was the first feature film created entirely by high school youth. All the money raised by Senior Year was donated directly to My Friend's House (an organization that helps abused women and children). John and his team have partnered with the Collingwood Youth Centre, Elephant Thoughts, and the Environment Network to continue bettering the community as they are currently producing a second feature film titled Failing With Flying Colours and a documentary about Youth Homelessness in Collingwood - both premiering from August 15 to 17. Accompanying the film is another Canadian first - an original soundtrack produced entirely by the youth. All the proceeds made from these three pieces will go to an emergency fund that will directly help homeless youth in Collingwood.
