About

NEVER STEADY, NEVER STILL is the debut feature film from award-winning filmmaker Kathleen Hepburn, and produced by Experimental Forest Films and Christie Street Creative. The story focuses on a mother’s struggle to take control of her life in the face of advanced Parkinson’s disease, while her son battles his sexual and emotional identity amongst the violence of Alberta’s oil field work camps.

This campaign is to raise miles to transport cast and crew from Vancouver to our northern British Columbia filming locations (Fort St. James and Fort St. John). The film will be shot in both winter and spring of 2016, and released in 2017. Because the film will be shot over two seasons, our travel costs are doubled, making it very expensive. We have raised enough money to make the film, but your contribution will help to transport cast and crew to northern BC, avoiding extra travel days and relieving crew from exhausted driving. All contributors will be thanked in the credits of the film.

The script has received awards from the Women in the Director’s Chair and Vancouver Women in Film + Television Festival. A short version of the film has been critically acclaimed, and was selected to the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF); the 2015 Vancouver International Film Festival where it won the Most Promising Director Award; and the TIFF Top Ten of 2015.

15,000 Miles will accommodate one round trip from Vancouver to our location, but any size contribution is welcome and much appreciated!
