Booking Sneak Preview Screenings

Why Sneak Preview Screenings?

Most documentaries go through changes throughout their screening process. We have a top-notch team committed to thoroughly testing the film and making changes before our world premiere and official release to give us the best chance at distribution and getting the film into theaters.

This is an exciting time to see the film and be part of this process.

This is a very expensive procedure and funds are needed to help us with these last few changes. Please donate below or consider coming on board as an investor or sponsor. Thank you!

Donations Urgently Needed

Silent Movie Theatre - interior
We are in need of immediate funding to hire interpreters and pay some travel costs for our entertainers.

When our journey began two years ago, the cynics in Hollywood said this couldn't be done. Thank you for believing in this vision with me and helping me prove them wrong. We're only just beginning.

$25 - will help pay for transportation

$50 - will help pay for interpreters for Q&A sessions

$100 - will help pay for airfares for the entertainers to attend their screenings

$500 - will help pay for educational workshops, Q&A and panel discussions at events

$1,000 - will help pay for our next step: touring, distribution and DVD production
