Filmmakers from Canada’s No-Job Capitol Re-brand Panhandling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Private banks and corporations need public bailouts to 
survive. Pension funds are the new piggy bank. Outsourcing is a growth 
industry.

What’ll be the next big re-brand?

A festival comedy from Windsor, Ontario—Canada’s current no-job 
capitol—is available for sharing on youtube, myspace, and blip.tv. 
Retraining for the Global Economy screened at the Planet Ant Film & Video 
Festival, The Indie Gathering, and Harvesting the FAM in summer, 2008.

The training film satire depicts Windsor’s current economic woes, and 
“trains” the recently unemployed how to succeed in the fastest-growing 
employment sector: Personal Fundraising, a re-branding of the ancient 
profession of panhandling.

The film is now available for free sharing on the following sites—
