Film the Flint Water Crisis Movie HERE IN FLINT

This petition had 13,871 supporters

The film Flint is set to start filming next week in Toronto Canada. The movie will star Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Betsy Brandt, and Marin Ireland, and is being directed by Bruce Beresford and written by Barbara Stepansky. The film is based on the Time Magazine story about the crisis.

What most people don't realize is that the Flint water crisis has NOT been resolved, even though the politicians, celebrities and media have left. Pipes are very slowly being replaced, but most people in the afflicted zip codes are still using bottled water and filters on a daily basis, including (but not limited to) schools and businesses. 

We are asking Storyline Entertainment and the Lifetime Network to film this movie here in Flint. If you are going to create an informative entertainment piece based on our city's plight and struggle, the least you could do is to bring the production HERE, instead of using the Canadian tax break to benefit yourselves. 

Bring the attention HERE. Bring the jobs HERE. Flint is where this film belongs, not Toronto.
