3100: Run and Become // World Premiere

2 likes

Dearest Friends,

After a looooong silence we're finally ready to announce our world premiere! The Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona is a mainstay of conscious cinema and we couldn't be more proud to have our debut screening there on June 1st.

In the meantime, words of praise have been pouring in from select runners with whom we shared the film. Two-time NYC Marathon winner and former women's marathon world record holder Tegla Loroupe saw a screener and wrote, "Wow!! This film shows how great any runner can become when they transcend their limits!" She continued, "Running is a school for life and shows how we can become better human beings. For us Africans, running has always been an integral part of our life, when we run to school, when we have to get water or when we go hunting."

And ... the big news is that we secured a theatrical distributor. We are launching in Santa Fe the week of August 17th. The subsequent schedule is as follows:

Week of 8/24 . Albuquerque

Week of 8/31. Sedona, Flagstaff, Phoenix

Week of 9/7 . Boulder, Denver

Week of 9/14 . Seattle, Portland, Bend, Eugene

Week of 9/28 . Chicago

Week of 10/26. NYC

Are you in one of the cities above? Could you be a screening captain and help spread the word? Of course, no matter what the reward level, we would like to thank you all as our valued backers with a free ticket to a screening of your choice. If you live somewhere else, are you confident that the film would be well received in your hometown? Shoot us an email (sanjay@illumine.com) and we'll figure out how to come to your city. And if you're outside the US - we're hoping to focus on international screenings in 2019. Our goal is to do as well as we can in the US in the hopes of paving the way for a strong international release.

Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for exact details on all screenings or send us an email.

And for the backers who requested a DVD or digital screener, stay tuned. We're determining with our distributor how early we can offer those. In the meantime, please enjoy our preview teaser below.

Thank you!!

Team 3100
