ALL ABOUT RISK FACTOR


The Risk Factor film, the Risk Navigator app, and the associated live events are created and produced by Kensington, a Toronto based production company.

We invite you to check the credits for the film, app and live events to see all the people who made them possible. You’ll find Kensington’s in-house staff, the designers and programmers of Toronto creative company PixelPusher, and lots of talented freelance artists.

This film/digital/live project would not have been possible without the generous support of our funding partners: The Telus Fund, TV Ontario, Canal D. Canada Media Fund, and the Ontario Media Development Corporation. We are also wish to thank Canada Safety Council, McMaster University, Risk Innovation Lab /Arizona State University, The Winton Centre for Risk Evidence and Communication at Cambridge University, The Wells Group, and the Walrus Foundation for providing their expertise and support to our campaign.

We and our partners share the hope that the film, app and live events will further the public understanding of risk.
