CBC Live: Tell us about the Adam Beach Foundation and what it does.
Adam Beach: The Adam Beach Foundation is something that I've put together to enhance the awareness of suicide, for the prevention of suicide and also to provide different opportunities to distract the younger generation from losing hope, from thinking that they have nowhere to go or have no ideas to put together.
Can you also tell us about the soon-to-launch Adam Beach Film Institute?
AB: What I've also done is create a film institute to bring in young filmmakers, to teach them and train them and then send them back to wherever they are to promote filmmaking in Northern communities.
