"Only 78" Documentary Filmed With Blackmagic Design Cinema Cameras
Jawad Mir is a Toronto based filmmaker who owns and runs two production companies: Film-Style Weddings and Sky Blue Productions. Film-Style Weddings offers high end wedding videography services, while Sky Blue Productions focuses on commercials and films. Jawad's passion for story telling is evident in both companies' productions. He aims to tell simple but meaningful stories in an insightful and powerful way. Jawad recently learned of a small coastal community in Nova Scotia, which is at risk of becoming uninhabitable on account of a deteriorating seawall. He has set out to make a documentary about the issue of various coastal communities. To tell the story of "Only 78," Jawad and his crew used two Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and DaVinci Resolve.

How Coffee Changed the Lives of a Group of Women in Costa Rica
 How Coffee Changed the Lives of a Group of Women in Costa Rica
Samanta Urena Arauz, an agribusiness management graduate, could have launched a city career but chose instead to join a women-run coffee cooperative in her remote Costa Rican village that has changed her life and that of her neighbors. The story of these uneducated but determined women is the subject of a documentary, "A Small Section of the World", that has been screened at several film festivals and opened in New York this month. Arauz, who now runs the coffee mill in Biolley, a small rural community in the scenic, lush Talamanca Mountains, says, "I am what I am because of coffee." The venture dates back to 1997 when many of the men and boys of Biolley left to find work in the capital San Jose, a bone-jarring eight-hour drive away, or in the United States.

 'Citizenfour' Producers Are Being Sued Over Edward Snowden Leaks
The U.S. government still wants to get its hands on Edward Snowden, the former CIA officer who has detailed the extent to which the NSA spies on citizens. Here's a timely question: Would the federal government ever do anything about Citizenfour , the Oscar-contending documentary that features Snowden? So far, the Barack Obama administration has given the film a pass, but on Friday, one former government official decided that enough was enough. Horace Edwards, who identifies himself as a retired naval officer and the former secretary of the Kansas Department of Transportation, has filed a lawsuit in Kansas federal court that seeks a constructive trust over monies derived from the distribution of Citizenfour.
