Based on a short story by Caroline Adderson (finalist for Canada’s Pulitzer Prize, the Governor General’s Literary Award) the project has been awarded the prestigious Bravo!Fact award and attracted a kick-ass cast, crew and production team. Pleased to Meet You tells a story of how, through acts of kindness one man is opened to transformation.

The film received a grant that will cover some production costs, but not others, and they're trying to raise $10,000 in donations. In exchange, they're offering a bunch of stuff, from behind-the-scenes photos and the DVD once the film is finished to special thanks and associate producer credits.
