Rising Above is an engaging 90-minute documentary film that sheds light on the issue of bullying within our schools and communities. It tells the stories of ten Canadians who have either been the targets of bullying or a person who bullied others in the past — their stories of hope, growth and courage in overcoming and rising above the challenges they faced.

We are grateful to have amazing partners and supporters who make this whole endeavour possible! Thank you to the Canadian Red Cross (our production partner), University of Manitoba (provincial sponsor in British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba) Ontario Provincial Police (provincial sponsor in Ontario), and Conestoga College (provincial sponsor in Ontario).

Currently on tour across Canada, the film will be making stops in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland!
