Never fear, your DVDs are on the way--
This is what we've been up to for a week already:
We've weathered confusing customs forms, snafus at the production facility, impenetrable tech issues (not to mention envelopes just a teeny bit too small), but the DVDs are going out the door. We are determined independent filmmakers after all, and we can do this (our mantra!) Thank you a million times over for your patience. If you haven't received anything by the end of next week please let us know. Those of you who opted for digital delivery should have received a link this morning.
Meanwhile, BIRTH STORY is, as of today, available to the general public on DVD and online at birthstorymovie.com, as well as on Amazon and iTunes. Your support allowed us to bring the film to audiences around the world with over 200 community screenings and sold out theatrical openings in New York City, Portland, Santa Fe, Toronto and San Francisco. (Our favorite request for a screening came from Antarctica! no lie--Antarctica!) AND in addition to raising awareness and inspiring audiences, the film has helped non-profits devoted to maternal health raise thousands of dollars. We feel blessed to have been a part of this project and hope you do too...
We are also pleased to let you know that birth educators and academics have begun using the film for their work in the classroom. Harvard, Yale, and Brown University have all joined the ranks of the fantastic institutions that now include the film in their collections. (The educational license comes with the right to use the film in classrooms, libraries and training programs, and comes with discussion materials. Click here for more information.)
Please let your Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest Pals know that your Kickstarter donation helped make this film possible and link to us at: http://birthstorymovie.com--you will be supporting independent film, women’s leadership, and positive stories about women’s bodies all in one fell swoop.
With hearty appreciation,
Sara and Mary
