      What happened to this film? I would have had this thing cut in a few weeks and ready to go. Whats up??

      Is the film going to completed or released? Because your twitter account hasn't been updated since August of last year and this hasn't been updated since march of last year. And I got my rewards minus the digital copy of the film and there wasn't anything with them so I was actually confused at what they were at first.

      Was this film ever actually produced? It's still only the trailer on the website and there haven't been any updates for over a year now. Just wondering what's going on.

    4. Kim Pham on April 21, 2017

      Any updates on the digital download of the film? I never got it???

      Can we please get an update on the documentary?

    7. Leonardo Corbucci on February 11, 2017

      Woow! We are just back for a new Kickstarter (a Sci-Fi this time :) ...and we where checking old projects we back... and I really liked this one! I was looking forward to watch it! ... can I buy it anywhere? VOD? Did you guys distributors anywhere? If you do please let us know! We really want to watch it! :)

    8. Jennie and Emily Ahrend on December 26, 2016

      Just. Curious if you wouldn't mind posting an update for us all? :)

    9. Greg Lassik on December 6, 2016

      Curious to find out if we will be receiving our backer rewards and seeing this film anytime soon. I understand how long it takes. I too am a documentary filmmaker, but maybe just give us a heads up on how its going. Thanks!

      I am not particularly fussed about receiving the final film as I backed this project mainly for the potential promotional value for the NWHL and maybe women's hockey in general. However it would be courteous for the creators to update their backers with some information on their progress if any. After all the second season is about to get underway and this movie will be past it's sell by date. It is perhaps sad to see that this project may be going the way of so many previous failed efforts.

      Hi! I never received my sticker rewards, but I see that most people did. Is there any way that I can still get them, or have some of them not been sent?
      Thank you!

    12. Eric Ruck on November 3, 2016

      I'm wondering if there's an update for the timeline of the film premier. We're approaching the December estimate, which I realize is only an estimate. But people from out of town need a little time to make plans for the visit. Thanks.

      Thanks Rachel Rebel. I hadn't heard an update on when rewards were to be shipped. I hope I get mine soon. Been waiting a long time.

    22. Rachel Rebel on June 6, 2016

      I saw on Twitter that someone received their rewards and 540 Films responded that most people should receive them in the next few days.

      Hello! It's now been almost 3 months since the last update. Is there any update on rewards and the production as a whole? Thank you!

    24. Thomas Seaman on May 4, 2016

      Any updates on backer rewards? This was intentionally a late christmas present for my Wife.

      It's starting to turn into a next christmas present.

    25. Sarah Hardey on April 26, 2016

      Like Laura Kemper and others, I too have not received any info or my reward. When will items be shipped. I have filled out all the info and would love to get an update. Thanks!

      Sarah & Laura -

      Thank you so much for pledging (thanks to Laura's brother, too!), for completing the survey, and for your patience! We're still waiting on some rewards, but we're working to get the items that we do have into the mail after the Isobel Cup Finals. We'll continue to post updates on the project and rewards here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1803843886/nwhl-history-begins/updates.

    28. Laura Kemper on February 3, 2016

      Any word on when rewards are being shipped? My brother and I both pledged and haven't seen our rewards or any updates. We both filled out the survey. Any info would be great!

    29. Sarah Hardey on January 30, 2016

      When will we receive your gifts for backing? I haven't got an email update since I pledged. :/

      Thank you to all the ladies of the NWHL for being great role models for my little 6 year old hockey princess. I am looking forward to sharing this DVD with her so she can see the strong women that came before her and what they did so she could have a place in the future to play professional hockey.

    34. Joann Stein on December 7, 2015

      Thank you to the NWHL players for your dedication and sacrifices as you pave the way for our daughters! Thank you to the supporters that come in every form from hockey moms, coaches, former professional athletes, sponsors, volunteers, etc. for inspiring girls youth ice hockey. Sincere appreciation from my heart for touching the lives in my family as we pledge to support you #growthegame. We promise we will back you to our ability. #futureNWHLplayer #HistoryBegins

    35. Karen Z on December 5, 2015

      As a former recreational player on women's teams in women's leagues, I am thrilled that there is a professional league for our elite players! I look forward to a West Coast expansion, hopefully not too far in the future...

    36. Mike Lowrey on December 3, 2015

      Happy to support this campaign and the NWHL. Congrats on meeting the goal. I can't wait to see the finished documentary!!

      Rachel - we met briefly last spring when my daughter was one of the girls on the ice during the NWHL's launch party. She's had a blast going to the Riveters games this season and getting to meet the players. We can't wait to see the finished product on your documentary!

      Yes! I am so beyond excited for this Kickstarter! When I was a kid, roller and ice hockey were the sports that I was the most interested in, only to learn that they were boys only - No Girls Allowed. To me, it is not just wonderful that we now have women hockey players FINALLY able to play professionally and get paid, but that we have people willing to promote the sport and the league through media such as this film. I look forward to seeing awareness about the NWHL grow, and I definitely look forward to seeing this film! I have no doubt that you will smash through your Kickstarter goal. :)

      Chuck -

      Thank you so much for your and your daughter's support. She sounds like an amazing girl! So grateful to you both for believing in this project.
