We just launched a new platform to stream and download the movie directly from our website, and the great news is that it's available worldwide! It's the cheapest place to get the film ($8.99) and allows you to download for your laptop, tablet or mobile device, or stream anytime from our site.
To say thanks for your support of this little film throughout its journey over the last year, we wanted to share a friends & family discount that you can use or share with anyone who you think might enjoy it. Just enter the code "BROOK" to get the movie for $5 (good until this Friday at midnight).
We are also happy to announce that our new film Short Term 12 won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award in the Narrative Competition at SXSW last month, and will be released theatrically late this summer. Your support of I AM NOT A HIPSTER helped give it enough credibility to secure funding and an incredible cast and crew for the new project, and we wanted to thank you again for supporting independent film. You can keep up with the new movie at www.shortterm12.com.
We wanted to thank you again for your support of this little film, which has been made possible by people like you who have contributed time, talents, and resources through each step along the way. This independent release is happening thanks to you, and we are still taken back by your generosity.
The film will be available on all digital outlets tomorrow and we're looking for help getting the word out. If you are interested in helping, we'd love if you'd be willing to do any or all of the following things tomorrow morning (1/15):
Share a link to IAMNOTAHIPSTER.com on Facebook and/or Twitter. The trailer, screening information, and links to all digital outlets can be found on our site, so it's the easiest place to send people. Tag Instagram photos #iamnotahipster

Thanks again for being a part of this project, it means the world to us!
The HIPSTER Team
Hopefully most of you have gotten a copy of the film in the mail (let us know if you don't see it by the end of the week). We wanted to share a new trailer for the film that we've posted to celebrate the release next Tuesday:
The film will also be playing in a handful of theaters across the country this weekend, which may be the last chance to see it on the big screen. A full list of screenings can be found on our website.
We hope you enjoy the film, thanks again for making this release possible!
We are happy to finally announce that I AM NOT A HIPSTER will be released on digital outlets and Cable Video-On-Demand on January 15th, and in select theaters throughout the month of January. DVDs and Blu-Rays will be shipped out at the start of the new year and should arrive on your doorstep about a week before the official release.
We are so grateful for your support, which allowed us to cover the costs of all of the necessary steps and kept us excited about the film when we ran into frustrating obstacles along the way. Thank you for your patience this year as we learned the process of distributing a film on our own, we are very much looking forward to January when we finally get to share the film with everyone!
Our website will be updated soon to include screening times and links for the various digital outlets, but you can find the current list of screenings below. More dates are being added so if you don't see a theater near you on the list, hopefully we will line one up soon!
