Just 5 days left!

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

Hello everyone!

We have just 5 days left on our new Kickstarter clock. As we're writing this we've raised just under 46.5K to fund the release of THE IRAN JOB, meaning we're still 13.5K short of our goal, which is set at 60K.

As you all know Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing modus which means that we don't actually receive ANY of the funding reached to date unless we get to the goal of 60K.

So it's crucial that we all rally the troops in these last 5 days to get to 60K. If you can think of friends or family or colleagues or anyone else who might be interested in matching your pledge please send them the Kickstarter link with a heartfelt endorsement. We appreciate your help immensely. Here's the link:

In the meantime the film is doing extremely well during its theatrical engagement in New York. We had such a good turnout last week that the IFC decided to extend the engagement for another week.

As of TODAY the new showtimes are 12:50, 4:20 and 7:50 PM

If you live in New York, or know people who do, please send them the release info (see below) and inspire them to come to the shows. ALL weekend shows have plenty of tickets available. If we can fill the seats like last week the momentum will keep rising and we may even get another extension. We are already getting booking requests from other cities around the country and even from Germany (!) -- all thanks to the success in New York. So please come out to the shows this weekend and bring many friends! We'll continue to have beer & fries after all night shows - see party info below.

Here's the NYC release info please spread it far and wide and inspire folks to come:
