This Wednesday, December 2nd will mark an unprecedented moment for the Racing Extinction community. Our film will premiere on the Discovery Channel in over 220 countries and territories around the world, and it’s an amazing chance to send a powerful message that we won’t stand by and lose this race.
As one of our earliest supporters, we're counting on you to join us in theaters on opening weekend. A successful opening weekend will allow us to stay in theaters longer and reach more people, sending a powerful message that this is a film everyone must see. Recruit your family and friends and help keep Racing Extinction in theaters!
Don't see your city on the list? Don't worry. We are adding more cities this week so keep checking our website and Facebook page to see where the film is opening near you. We have one-night-only events taking place in Toronto, Vancouver, Jackson Hole, Sedona and Bellingham. You can see the full list of screenings here. And if you are interested in bringing a group of 25 or more to the theater, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on discount tickets.
We look forward to seeing you in theaters next week!
We had an amazing time premiering the film at Sundance, where the film received standing ovations at every screening. The highlight of the festival was showing the film to 450 middle and high school students whose enthusiasm for changing the world was infectious. We can't wait to share the film with the rest of the world.
Which is why we are so excited to announce that Discovery has picked up worldwide rights to Racing Extinction, and will be shown simultaneously in 220 countries in a global broadcast event. The film will also have a limited theatrical run and will be released on VOD. We're still working out the details on the release dates and when it will be available for special screenings for NGO's, on campuses, etc. Be sure to sign up for updates at www.racingextinction.com. If you'd like to screen the film you can submit a request here and we will let you know when the film is available.

Can’t make it out to Park City? Don’t worry. We will have screenings across the country in 2015 and we will announce those dates on Facebook, Twitter and our mailing list in the coming months. You can also sign up to host your own screening of Racing Extinction here.
This festival premiere isn’t just about a movie. Sundance will also mark the beginning of the Racing Extinction campaign where - with your help - we plan on galvanizing audiences to save endangered species and curb our consumption and carbon habits. We look forward to an exciting year ahead of us.
