The Happy Film on iTunes 6/23!

2 likes

Dear Backers -

After successful US and UK theatrical runs, The Happy Film will be released online (in these markets) on Friday, June 23rd! Pre-orders are available on iTunes now and digital downloads will go out to our backers immediately after. We so hope you enjoy this film and ask that you please share this news with your friends and communities. It's been a very long road, but we are quite happy with where we arrived. 

For our final USB rewards… the USB drives are currently being loaded with the film files. We will confirm addresses through Kickstarter once more (in case anyone has moved in the extremely long time this has taken to arrive) and ship the USBs in early July. 

Thank you so much for your patience and support!

Sincerely,

Ben & Stefan
