New Film from Jeremy Seifert, Stephanie Soechtig, Morgan Spurlock, and the team behind GMO OMG

1 like

Howdy dear supporters of GMO OMG!

We know it's been a while, but we have some exciting news to share! Jeremy Seifert and the team behind DIVE! and GMO OMG are teaming up with Director, Stephanie Soechtig (Fed Up), and Executive Producer, Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) on a new film titled, THE DEVIL WE KNOW.

 Much like our previous films, THE DEVIL WE KNOW is a wake-up call about a serious social problem. Told through the eyes of citizens in West Virginia who took on a powerful chemical corporation, the film reveals the lack of oversight on the industrial chemicals we’re all exposed to every single day, with dire effects on our health and the environment.

In addition to announcing the film, we are also excited to share with everyone that we have just launched a crowdfunding campaign, http://igg.me/at/thedevilweknow. Please check out the campaign, watch the video and consider donating or sharing!

We have some amazing rewards that come with donations, including a download or DVD of the film, organic products, tickets to LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS, and a visit to the set of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA.

You can also check out an exclusive clip released today HERE.

Your support was crucial to the success of GMO OMG, but now we need your help on a film that exposes a similar threat to human health and the environment: INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS.

As always, thank you all for your time and support!

Jeremy Seifert and Josh Kunau

"Growing Cities" A film about Urban Farming

1 like

Dear GMO OMG Supporters,

We wouldn't normally do this, however, there is a new film we would like to draw some attention and support to.  It's called "Growing Cities" and was created by first time filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette.  You can watch the trailer and learn more about the film on their website, http://www.growingcitiesmovie.com

Dan and Andrew's film has been accepted to screen on local PBS channels nationally and they are looking for support to get the film ready and suitable for PBS standards.  They only have 11 days left of their Kickstarter campaign and are a third of the way funded.

Please check out their Kickstarter campaign, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/growincities/growing-cities-lets-get-urban-farming-on-pbs

And, if you feel so inclined, please support Growing Cities and help spread the word.  It would be great to see their film about urban farming succeed and make it onto local PBS television stations.  They are spreading an important and uplifting message and we hope everyone has a chance to check see their film!

Kindly,

GMO OMG Film Team

P.S. for those of you that haven't seen GMO OMG yet and supported us, we will be in touch next month regarding the digital downloads of the film, so stay tuned!

GMO OMG Set for wide release!

Dearest Kickstarter Supporters,

First off, thank you all for your amazing support for GMO OMG!  As many of you probably know, the film was released at the end of 2013 in select theaters.  That really helped get the film and it's message to a wider audience by first going mainstream.

However, now it is time for a much wider release and so we are pleased to announce that GMO OMG will be released on DVD/BluRay, iTunes, Amazon, On Demand, and in select retailers on July 22nd!  We will be making more announcements as the date draws near, to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/gmoomgfilm) as well as sending updates to our email list (You can sign up at the bottom of our website here, http://www.gmofilm.com).

For all of our backers who are to receive a digital download of the film, we are working on this and expect that you should either receive notification on or right before the release of the film.  So, it's definitely coming and soon!  

If you were in a reward group that is to receive a digital download and never responded to the questionnaire, please do so at your earliest convenience.  It's been a few years and hopefully everyone sent back their questionnaires, which we have a record of.  At this time, we will only be looking to make sure we have everyone's information for the DVD and Digital Download of the film.

We can't thank you all enough for your support and we hope you enjoy the film and continue to show your support and spread the word about GMO OMG as it will soon be available for everyone!

Kindest Regards,

The GMO Film Team

GMO OMG - Theatrical Run

4 likes

Hello everybody,

Just a quick update here that we are in the midst of our theatrical run and the film is doing well! We had successful premieres and opening weeks in NY, LA, and Seattle, and now the film is spreading to theaters throughout Washington state in the lead up to their GMO labeling initiative i522.

For more updates on screenings, please visit the "screenings" page on our new website: www.gmofilm.com

Also, please check out the "press" page for all the recent coverage of the film.

Many of you are wondering when you'll get your free digital download, and I wish we could say exactly when, but we don't know yet! We are still trying to grow the theatrical release of the film to garner more reviews and publicity, and also to reach as wide an audience as possible. When digital downloads are available, you will be the first to know and download!

More updates coming soon as we lock in DVDs and digital release. 

Thanks! Jeremy
