Dear Friends and Supporters,
We're excited to announce that New York Magazine has chosen AN ENCOUNTER WITH SIMONE WEIL as a Critic's Pick! Read capsule review here.
Thanks to all of you we've almost reached our $20,000 goal. We need to raise just $630 to get there by midnight tonight. So, we're making one last appeal for your help to get us to the finish line.
- increase your donation by a small amount (an extra $20 gets you a t-shirt)
Help in whatever way you can. All funds raised will go towards our national and international outreach campaign. We
can't do it without you!
Tickets are now on sale for our opening week (March 23 - 29) at the Quad Cinema in NYC. If you can, we urge you to come opening weekend. How we do then will determine whether the film gets extended for a second week. Small independent films like AN ENCOUNTER WITH SIMONE WEIL depend on word-of-mouth publicity, but too often the film's off the screen by the time people hear about it.
We've lined up some great special guests including Sylvie Weil, Sylvère Lotringer, and Anna Brown (all of whom also appear in the film). Check out our screenings page for schedule and updates.
Get involved with spreading the word about the premiere! Forward the attached screening flyer and/or print it out and put it up at your workplace, local cafe, or bookstore. Students with valid ID get in to weekday matinees for $6.50.
MANY, MANY THANKS for your support and your patience
Julia, Alex, Mazal, and the rest of the Simone Weil team
