Dear Kickstarter Supporters:
You've been with us since our campaign in 2012 and now we're so happy to share our theatrical and on demand release with you on Friday 4.10.15! Making this film has been such a rewarding journey. We're thrilled to be sending it out into the world, and invite you to continue on with us for the most exciting phase of all.
We are a big, aspirational movie with a small, passionate team. In the past few months, we've been brainstorming with partner organizations, creating publicity through contacts, friends of friends and fans of the film, and furiously spreading the word on the film festival circuit. We've been working around the clock on this grass roots marketing because we just don't have the dollars that it takes to typically release a teen movie and reach a teen audience (around 30 million).
But passion goes a long way and we believe there could be just the right synergy for Sisterhood to make an impact. All this is to say that the coming week is an important one for us. It's a chance to prove that important independent films can break through, that there is a place for genre-bending stories, that adults and teenagers can love the same kinds of films because teenagers, too, long for smart, thought-provoking material. That a diverse movie by women and about women has an audience and can succeed (film industry translation: make money).
We invite you to see Sisterhood in a theater between Friday and next Thursday if you're in one of our releasing cities, and rent or buy it on iTunes/watch on demand.

And check out some reviews and features that have come in:
"The Sisterhood of Night is so unusually moving and penetrating because it refuses to cloud its emotions in distancing irony, anger, or nihilism. The film has a cleansing sense of earnestness that parallels the sisterhood's yearning for acceptance and connection." -Slant Magazine
"The drama is a poignant paean to young women and feminine creativity, bolstered by impressive performances from a fresh cast and a sense of breathy, hyper-aware immediacy that captures the heady now-ness of adolescence." -The Wrap
"The Sisterhood of Night is a film about the bond between girls—how we connect and how being friends is the most magical thing in the world." -Rookie Magazine
Get ready for Sisterhood! xoxo, Team Sisterhood
