Maker

Part of the Art, Design, & Architecture Series • Co-Presented by Maker Expo - a diverse, family-friendly showcase of makers, artists & organizations who create amazing things in celebration of the do-it-yourself spirit happening Sept 19 at Kitchener City Hall 

"Maker" is a feature-length documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the U.S.

From the producers of the internationally acclaimed “Design & Thinking,” “Maker” is a feature-length documentary that looks into the current Maker Movement in America – a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together culture fueled by passion and powered by the advent of new technologies.

The "Maker Movement", sometimes called the "Third Industrial Revolution," subverts traditional manufacturing by building on innovative concepts such as open source, local manufacturing, crowd funding, and digital fabrication. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, "Maker" delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the Maker Movement – and returns with a timely snapshot of one of the transforming influences of the current age.

The film features extensive interviews of key figures behind headline-making projects, daily practitioners, and observers of the movement, in an effort to piece together what this ecosystem looks like, and present insights on how it can impact society, culture and the economy, and the world.
