Here's the thing. 

We want to give this film the kind of release it DESERVES.

Join us in showing the world that movies can be released widely and WELL.

Brooklyn Castle is coming to a theater near you this October!!

Dear backers -

How are you?!?! Filmmaker Katie Dellamaggiore here. It's been over two years since we launched our first Kickstarter campaign to create a film about the best junior high chess team in the country, I.S. 318 and a lot has happened since then! Here's what's happened because of YOUR HELP:

  • Thanks to your generous support, we finished the film earlier this spring (YES!)
  • As you may know we re-named it Brooklyn Castle (http://www.brooklyncastle.com) & debuted it at the SXSW last March.
  • It was selected as the 2012 SXSW Documentary Audience Award Winner!
  • We secured a distributor earlier this Summer and IT'S NOW COMING TO SELECT THEATERS on October 19th!

We don't want to lose the amazing grassroots support that got us here in the first place, so WE'RE ASKING YOU, our very first backers TO LEND A HAND again. Please take a moment to help us out now by:

We look forward to partnering with you to do more and tell the world about our BIG RELEASE in theaters on October 19th. Stay tuned!!

- Katie
