Don Davies Interviewed by David Vaisbord for The Little Mountain Film from David Vaisbord on Vimeo.


Great documentaries enrich the lives of individuals and communities. They have a unique ability to engage and connect people, transform communities, and improve societies.  During the last six years David Vaisbord has been successful in serving as a voice for his local community. Now, a team of dedicated individuals want to produce the feature documentary that tells this powerful David and Goliath story to a wider audience.

Documentary filmmaking is an expensive endeavor, and because Canadian broadcasters no longer support independent producers such as myself, we have turned to more creative fundraising techniques such as crowd-sourcing. Crowd-sourcing campaigns succeed on their ability to reach their intended audience.


Thank you!
