NOW What episode 25: How an evangelical church attracted a millennial congregation in Toronto

In the last of our Hot Docs interviews, Ali Weinstein discusses #Blessed, which examines the efforts of Australian church C3 to reach young Toronto hipsters

The pandemic has driven Hot Docs online this year, and in a special series of podcasts over the length of the festival, NOW senior film writer Norm Wilner will be talking to filmmakers about their projects and the issues behind them.

In the final episode of the series, Norm welcomes filmmaker Ali Weinstein, who has two films in the festival: she’s the director of #Blessed, which follows the efforts of an Australian evangelical church to attract Toronto millennials, and she produced Lulu Wei’s There’s No Place Like This Place, Anyplace, which used the redevelopment of Mirvish Village to examine what “affordable housing” truly means in this city.

NOW What is a podcast exploring the ways Torontonians are coping with life in the time of coronavirus. New episodes of NOW What will be released every Tuesday and Friday. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, listen on Spotify or just play it below. And remember, we’re all in this together.
