My Millennial Life wins Canadian Screen Award (CSA) for Best Doc Program

On March 8th, My Millennial Life was announced as the 2017 CSA winner for Best Documentary Program! Producing partner, Charlotte Engel and I were thrilled to accept the award, and honoured that MML had been chosen by the Canadian Academy.

It was a fantastic evening. We sat with our friends from TVO, John Ferri and Linda Fong, and together had the opportunity to applaud many talented and deserving creators as they came on stage and accepted their awards.

We’d like to thank the millennials who appear in the documentary, the entire MML team, TVO, and everyone who contributed to making the project such a success.

My Millennial Life Screens at Toronto Reference Library Dec. 1, 6:30 pm

As part of the Toronto Reference Library’s  “Thought Exchange Series”  My Millennial Life is being presented on Thursday, December 1, 6:30 pm

My Millennial Life is a provocative documentary about millennials and tackles the plight of the overqualified and the underemployed. See if your experience as a millennial, the parent or the employer of a millennial, matches the experience of the twenty-somethings and boomers in the documentary.

Maureen will be there with one of the millennials featured in the project to share stories about making the film, talk about the struggles of finding meaningful work, falling in love and building relationships and a life after graduation.
