OF TWO MINDS DVD is on its way - May 14th!

Hi from Doug and Lisa, and the whole OF TWO MINDS crew here in Los Angeles!

We are very proud to FINALLY be releasing the Of Two Minds DVD (we've been waiting just like all of you!), as well as the digital and cable video-on-demand versions on Tuesday, May 14th.  This is THE OFFICIAL RELEASE from Docurama/Cinedigm, a top distributor of documentaries and independent films, and we're incredibly excited to get the film to an even bigger audience during May, National Mental Health Awareness Month.

And at last, those of you who were at our DVD award level or above will be getting the first copies of the DVD in the mail, just as soon as our giant box arrives from the distributor!  We are really excited about this DVD release...we were able to add the maximum allowable amount of bonus material - OVER AN HOUR - and even include a completely new short film that's only going to be on the DVD!  If you'd like to purchase additional copies for others, or buy one yourself, the DVD is available on Amazon, or directly via this link:

We're also incredibly proud to announce that we have won the 2013 Prism Award for Best Documentary Feature, at an amazing ceremony in Beverly Hills honoring excellence in mental health-themed film and TV.  We have other exciting news coming this summer, including being selected as the KEYNOTE FILM for the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) National Convention in San Antonio, as well as the NAMI California State Convention!

Lots more screenings, special events and other news will keep coming at our Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/Of2Minds  and our website:  www.oftwomindsmovie.com

Again, the film has come this far because of all of you.  Thanks again for being a part of this journey.

Best,

Doug and Lisa

OF TWO MINDS on tour, and DVDs coming AT LAST!

Hello to our OF TWO MINDS family...we've been ridiculously busy with the film over the last several months, touring across America (and now Canada) and polishing the final version of our official DVD release master!  It's finally coming, for real, and we are thrilled about how it's all come out (and THANK YOU for your patience!).

The DVD will officially be available and in people's hands in mid-May, but pre-orders are open NOW.  We've partnered with one of the biggest documentary distribution companies in the world, New Video/Docurama, to handle the sales of the DVD, as well as making it available on iTunes, cable television video on demand, and much more.  

What makes the DVD very special are our bonus features...over ONE HOUR of additional material, including a completely new short film made from an amazing event we filmed in Toronto, Canada!  If you were one of our supporters who donated at the DVD level and above, you will be the FIRST ANYWHERE to receive pressings of the full DVD!  

If you're interested in pre-ordering the DVD for yourself or as a gift, here's the link to purchase a copy (please feel free to share it!):
