Just over two years since The Radius Project premiered at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre in downtown Peterborough, local filmmaker and music photographer Michael Hurcomb is once again screening his acclaimed music documentary — but this time online, anytime, and for free.
Directed, shot, and edited by Michael and co-produced with Ryan Lalonde, the film takes a look at the wealth of musicians who have come from the radius around Peterborough and then went on to national and international acclaim.
The documentary features interviews with George Stroumboulopoulos, Serena Ryder, Royal Wood, Three Days Grace, Thousand Foot Krutch, Ronnie Hawkins, The Strumbellas, Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, July Talk, Hawksley Workman (who recently announced he is moving to Peterborough), Greg and Rob Wells, and many more.

Michael decided to make the film available for free streaming during the COVID-19 crisis in recognition of the shutdown.
In lieu of paying to see the film, Michael is asking everyone to consider making a monetary donation to Kawartha Food Share in support of local food banks.
You can find the full version of the film on Michael’s website at michaelhurcomb.wixsite.com/michaelhurcomb/theradiusproject.
As well as the original version, there’s also a family-friendly version (the original version contains some swearing, because musicians).
And, if you’ve already seen the film, you might be interested in the version with audio commentary by Michael and Ryan.
All three versions are available at Michael’s website, where you can also make a donation to Kawartha Food Share.
