If your church or other organization would like to sponsor
Hell and Mr. Fudge in your town, here's the basic information:
You rent the theater. Best bets are independent theaters, some of which are non-profit community theaters. But some of the big multiplex theaters do rent for special events.
You benefit from ticket sales, recouping all, or a major portion of, your initial outlay for rent.
Advertising and Promotion
We provide you with printable poster files for printing in various sizes, from large theater-size versions to bulletin-board sizes. There is no charge for these files, but you will need to have the printing done locally.
We have postcard-size handouts that you can obtain from us at minimal expense. You can imprint these with your local information.
We can also provide a sample press release and a newspaper ad template.
We will take care of all technical details with the theater.

|Read this review!|
The film captures the ambiance of some quirky church affairs quite fairly, I thought, without villianizing unnecessarily; I think this is quite an accomplishment in itself. It tells the story of the annihilationist viewpoint rather simply, in view of the complexity that could be involved. And I think that is commendable and opens up the issue for fair consideration.
But it is the humanity and the ethics of Edward Fudge that comes through, and I think that message overshadows the rest of your story, and I think that is just fine. His life and character are worthy of the treatment in film, and if this is an attempt at fostering faith in Jesus Christ as well as a view of hell, this film serves that well. And it does this without preaching. Amazing. (Kenneth Mick)

- "Great movie. Very enjoyable. It will appeal to the churched - but, it could open some doors as is to the unchurched."
- "I grew up Catholic and I always had this belief that if God loved us so much, how could he allow us to burn in HELL. This movie was reconfirming of my beliefs since I was a child. I have never been able to prove that notion and this movie is very confirming in that which I can't wait to share with my family and friends."

|The new book|
"Does the Bible really teach that God will finally keep people alive forever in hell just to suffer torment that never ends? If that is not what the Scripture teaches, is it not a slander against the heavenly Father almost too heinous to describe?" (Edward Fudge in Hell - A Final Word)
