U.S. Theatrical Release
11-Days Left To Go!

Happy September to you all! The heat is on for us at Ghosts Media…
We are in the final stretch now of our U.S. Theatrical Fundraising Campaign. 
With your support we will conduct an Oscar Qualifying release in LA and NYC this fall, and extend to other American cities. Our fundraiser concludes on September 27th. Read all about it and watch our campaign video.

Every dollar counts, and each additional dollar raised will strengthen our campaign. Please share our Indiegogo fundraising campaign widely and help us put the Ghosts on the radar this fall, and beyond. For the Ghosts.

We are preparing for an exciting (and very busy) fall season and will announce our U.S. premiere dates on Monday September 23rd! Read Liz Marshall's latest blog for details.

Our 5-Day Ghost-Free Journey
Kicks Off Today!

Our fun and educational 5-Day Ghost-Free Journey blog is happening all of this week, follow Siobhan’s personal journey and join the conversation: 
Monday September 16th – Friday September 20th.

I am so excited for this journey! I am a 21-year old student who has been a full-time animal lover for my entire life, and a vegetarian for about 7 years now. I have been looking into eliminating dairy and eggs from my diet for about 3 years now, but I fear the implications that may come to my health…

We are excited to welcome a very special guest this Thursday to our Ghost-Free Journey, Victoria Moran – best-selling author and founder/director of the Mainstreet Vegan Academy. Victoria will answer some of Siobhan’s questions.

Compassion for Animals Award

Jo-Anne McArthur of We Animals, and Liz Marshall, director/producer of The Ghosts in Our Machine, received the 3rd Annual Lisa Grill Compassion for Animals Award at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival in recognition of the 'sustainable impact' of the film, and of Jo's photographic work. 
What an honour! Thank you!

While we filmed The Ghosts in Our Machine, we met some animals who lived in sheds by the thousands, like at the mink farms. But we also met individuals whom I’ve often recalled and some whom I’ve had the great pleasure of seeing again… Read Jo-Anne's Blog.

Jo-Anne’s photography and Liz’s filmmaking have together created a masterful and inspiring documentary of the many ways in which animals suffer at our hands…I take comfort and pride in knowing that Marshall and McArthur are the next generation of advocates — smart, talented, committed. We all can do what we can. And I never for one minute forget that all of us together can and will change the world for the better for the wonderful animals with whom we share this planet.

GFJ Coaches Rosemary & Donna
Siobhan is from Guelph, Ontario and has been a vegetarian for 7 years. After seeing THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE at Hot Docs in Toronto, she decided that it was time to “make a change and learn how to adapt to the vegan lifestyle.” Some of the issues that Siobhan would like to examine and learn more about are: how to be a vegan on a college budget, finding cruelty-free make-up and having companion animals as a vegan. 

We are especially pleased to have Victoria Moran join us on 9/19. Victoria is the author of Mainstreet Vegan and she will join in to answer some of Siobhan’s questions. 
Please join us during this journey – the support from our wonderful community is invaluable.

For the Ghosts,
Donna & Rosemary
