EVERYONE'S GOING TO DIE is an UK indie comedy drama starring Nora Tschirner and Rob Knighton, with Kellie Shirley, Stirling Gallacher and Madeleine Duggan, with original music by Charlie Simpson. After a hit festival run, and theatrical releases in France, Latin America and the US, we need to raise £22,000 to get the film in cinemas (and everywhere else) in its home territory of the UK as well as Nora's home, Germany.

"An utter gem. The reason why UK independent cinema can, at times, excite. Tschirner is brilliant. Knighton is a deadpan delight. A truly special film." Daily Record ★★★★★

Produced by BAFTA winner Kelly Broad; Written, Directed, Produced and Edited by Jones, and shot in 20 days on location in Folkestone, Kent,  Everyone’s Going To Die is a story about coming home, getting by and the redemptive power of feeling you’re not alone. Foreigner Melanie's life in a seaside town is going nowhere when she meets Ray, back in his estranged home with a shady job to do. A moment's escape becomes a chance to save themselves, and each other, and together they negotiate a world of reincarnated cats, insistent porn hotlines and sexy beavers on rollerskates that will change both their lives, and where nobody, today at least, is going to die.

"If one film deserves your attention this year, it should be this one. Spellbinding central performances....some of the driest humour put to film recently. A gem of a film: bittersweet, concise, thought provoking and entirely captivating...one of the most impressive British films going." Cinehouse  ★★★★★

We want you all to BE OUR DISTRIBUTOR.

If you love movies, want to support independent film, are tired of a constant diet of sequels and formulaic blockbusters, or just like the look of EGTD, please help us bring EGTD to the big screen. As always, there are REWARDS on offer, but every single person that contributes will have their name at the start of the film. Up in lights. Forever.  You'll be a part of cinema history.

"A delight of a film...sharp and dryly witty...every aspect is exceptional...a triumph in independent filmmaking that instantly makes Jones, Tschirner and Knighton ones to watch." Seensome.com ★★★★★

Here's why you should.

Plus,look - AWARDS!

CICAE EUROPEAN ART CINEMA AWARD, Mons 2014, Winner; SPECIAL JURY PRIZE, Festival Du Film De Dinard 2013, Winner; BIFA AWARDS 2013, Nominee, Raindance Award; BEST BRITISH FILM, Edinburgh Film Festival 2013, Nominee (Also in Little White Lies 5 Best Of EIFF); BEST BRITISH FILM, Raindance 2013, Nominee.

Here are AUDIENCES in Argentina queuing round the block to see the film:

All over the world, the response has been truly humbling. We now just need to make sure the film's home audiences get the chance to see it, and your money will pay for everything we need to do that. Most importantly, to spread the word.

We're all super proud of the film, can't wait for you to see it and the fact is no distributor in the world would work harder than us to get the most out of your money. 

"A fantastic romantic comedy disguised as a dark, hip thriller...the script and direction lift it up to greatness...a near perfect gem, already one of my favourite films of the year." FlickFeast ★★★★★

Distribution for indie films is in flux. There's a whole essay to be written on why, but it's hard for mainstream distributors to make smaller films worthwhile, whether they like them or not. This despite a big and growing audience for good indie movies, and more ways than ever to reach them. In cinemas, online, through pay TV, Itunes, Netflix, Amazon instant - the list goes on. We think the future of indie film lies with people who don't have to light, heat and feed an office full of people in central London. People like you.

"Beautiful looking, great chemistry, laugh out loud funny...The performances are so terrific, the music so good, and the dialog so natural yet funny that I was just engulfed by the experience...Just like everyone is going to die, everyone should see this movie... I dare you not to see this film." SXSW 2013 Best Of The Fest - Randomwalkthroughfilm ★★★★★

LOOK OUT FOR OUR UPCOMING KICKSTARTER MOVIE JOURNEY TO RELYSIUM. 

To support the campaign we're working on a spectacular pitch film exclusive to Kickstarter, featuring EGTD stars Nora Tschirner and Rob Knighton - to be released in the next week or two.

UNNECESSARY ANALOGY ALERT!

Imagine our movie is a little baby bird. 

A cool bird, like a Falcon. 

Yeah!

Only it has just hatched on top of a mountain. Now, with your help, it can spread its wings and fly.

Will it plummet thousands of feet to its death? 

No.*

It will soar!

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

JONES

"A cinema high..you walk out and can’t help but smile...witty and intelligent dialogue...the humour is perfectly juggled with more serious themes. This is a beautiful film. I fell in love with it." EUFS.org
