Dear <<First Name>>,
We're thrilled to be sharing exciting news with you! Since our premiere last fall, we've screened Love Thy Nature
at film festivals
around the US and across the globe; received 17 awards
; revamped our website
; and just signed a distribution deal with TUGG
Plus, we're opening in theaters
in San Francisco and the Bay Area in the Spring!
What is even more exciting is that Love Thy Nature
is now available as a tool for non-profits to advance their vision and promote change.
Local, national and global NGOs - whose mission is to protect and/or strengthen our bond with nature - can now use the film to further their causes: they can have guest speakers at the screenings, attract new members, and even raise funds.
We're deeply honored to be joining forces with some of our most esteemed non-profits, which have been beacons of change in the "human-nature" movement.
One such organization is Bioneers
. With 25 years of visionary leadership, the founders Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simmons have been bringing together a myriad of scientific and social innovators, igniting "A Revolution from the Heart of Nature."
We're overjoyed to be co-hosting with Bioneers our first theatrical screenings right on time for Earth Day!
Apr 17th-23rd - Vogue Theater
- San Francisco, CA.
Apr 19th, 4:15pm - Rafael Theater
- San Rafael, CA.
Plus, the New Parkway Theater
in Oakland, CA, selected Love Thy Nature
for their "Doc Night" on April 14th at 7pm.
If you are on the Bay Area on Earth Week, make sure you get your tickets soon.
And if you're at the helm of an organization (including NGOs, schools, community centers, spiritual groups etc.) and would like to explore a screening partnership,
contact our talented Outreach Producer Matthew Chandler
Theatrical... "on Demand?"
That's right. The distribution company we just closed a deal with - TUGG - has a cutting edge method of grass roots screenings some have coined as "Theatrical on Demand" or TOD. The idea is that anyone interested can now host a screening at a theater (or campus, or community hall, etc.) near them!
How does it work? That person (the "promoter") goes to our TUGG-Love Thy Nature
page, requests a screening at the time and location of their choice. We promote the event (via social media or otherwise) and if a minimum number of people are interested, a "threshold" is met and the screening is green lit.
Besides having an opportunity to share Love Thy Nature
with their community, as mentioned earlier, hosts can invite guest speakers, present their own mission to viewers (as long as they are in alignment with our own); broaden their own audience base, and even raise funds.
Interested in hosting?
Go to our TUGG page
or email our Outreach Producer Matthew Chandler
for any questions.
Think of this as Biomimicry for film distribution. We're doing it the way of nature... releasing seeds in the wind, landing on the most fertile soil, growing into trees, connecting with the web of life.
Grassroots at its foundation.
Wishing you Nature
