Council chambers was filled to the brim as community members came to view the premiere of a 3 minute film commissioned by the Village of Salmo titled “Where all Roads Lead” made by Pollinator Films. The film was a huge success in community engagement and online where sharing exceeded 10 times the actual community population.
The film was produced as part of the public consultation and asset mapping process planned for the development of a new official community plan (OCP). Chief Administrator Diane Kalen-Sukra introduced the film as part of the annual audio-visual progress report to Council on the Strategic Plan.
The film showcases the community priorities, assets, values and vision of the people of Salmo as identified in a survey completed by ten percent of the population. Over 100 residents of Salmo participated in the making of the film.
The stars of the film are community residents and the voice over is by motion picture artist Andy Geller (trailers for Finding Nemo, Armageddon, and The Sixth Sense) and an appearance by eight time Grammy award winning electronic music artist Skrillex.
