      Hello kNow Productions, February has arrived, the last scheduled delivery for the DVDs was January. When is supposed to be the theatrical release?. I don't think "Later this year" its enough information, we waited patiently and so far we don't even have a date.

      In case you produced subtitles for non-english-speaking audiences, will it be possible to include them in the digital download package (e.g. as srt-files). My parents are now interested in the movie as well, but their english is..... well, let's say there is room for improvement ;-)

      We hope you are enjoying a warm and restful holiday season!

      The Dancing in Jaffa team has been busy mailing out t-shirts and postcards - we hope you have received yours. If you are entitled but haven't received your shirts in the mail, please send us a direct message so we can resolve any issues and get you the rewards you deserve!

      This is going to be a very exciting year for Dancing in Jaffa! As you all know, the film has been extremely well received at festivals around the world and is scheduled to have a theatrical release later this year. Screening schedules and more will be available on our new website: www.dancinginjaffa.com

      Scott, we aren't supposed to see a DVD or electronic delivery until January 2014, at least according to the text for the pledge levels. Would be fun to hear how things are going, though.

      Creator Scott Harper on March 14, 2013

      I haven't heard much about this project in a while. How are things going? Any word on when the rewards will be coming? Mostly, I just want the DVD, but the t-shirt would also be cool. No pressure, I'm just curious. :)

      This is so cool! I remember Pierre talking about this when we were training for the Ballroom company and to teach in the NYC schools. I'm so glad he did it and that you are making this film. I'll have to stop by the studio and congratulate him! And see if I can help out sometime. Thanks!

      Conor - Thank you for your note! Actually believe it or not, Pierre will be starting the Dancing Classrooms program in Belfast (where his father was born...he was Irish) on February 25th. He will be working in 2 Protestant and 2 Catholic schools. For the first 2 weeks Pierre will be teaching them separately (just like he did in Jaffa) and then on the 3rd week bring one class with the other class and teach them together and at the end have the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match...EXACTLY the way he did in Jaffa. We are hoping our film will help Pierre spread his message and take Dancing Classrooms all over the world.

      Congratulations on passing your goal! I wish I could have donated 1000000000 more but I am starting a jewelry business and pretty soon I might be needing funding for my own! It is simply amazing what you guys are doing! This project is dear to me because I lived in the Ramallah area during the 99-02 intifada. My father and his entire family left as refugees in the 70s and came to America, but my father wanted to go back an took us with him at the age of 9. These children are so blessed to have you helping them cope with the fighting and teaching them to respect one another. I truly wish you were there when I was there because our American school in Ramallah was attacked by Israeli soldiers and it created so much hate and anger in kids who were born in raised in America to love all races. There were tough times. Too many innocent people died in front of our eyes while we would be crossing the checkpoints to walk to school. Now if we can just get the adults to dance together!!! But our youth is our future.

      I love what you are doing and wish I could add many zeroes to my pledge. I have sent your link to Facebook, and shared it at the Goldcoast Ballroom. I'm the victim of a theft so not that liquid right now, but I do have artwork and many dance gift products, as I am the author of "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass..it's about learning to dance in the rain."
