Get I AM BREATHING into more cinemas

You've probably signed so many online petitions already – but this one is quite unique.

We think we've got all it takes to get I AM BREATHING into more cinemas – an acclaimed film, festival laurels, dozens of 4 and 5-star reviews, multiple-page coverage in newspapers, TV and radio – and we have yet to meet an audience member who wasn't profoundly moved by the film they had seen. And so many people have been asking us where they can see the film!

We've just proven our impact in many one-off events around our Global Screening Day. The first cinemas are now committing to doing longer runs, showing the film for three to seven days.

Yet some cinema programmers still think, "who wants to go and see a film about someone dying?" So we need to tell them it's a film about life, it's a film for everyone.

Like Dominic Lawson wrote in The Independent, it's about "a dying man who reminds us just what life is for". 

And we need you to stand up and say:

"I really want to see I AM BREATHING in our local cinema, and I will do my best to help fill the screening and bring many other people with me."

GOAL: 2,000 signatures

Will you sign?

Like this to spread the word – but make sure you've signed above as well.

I definitely think this should be shown in the cinema, particularly with the profile of ALS currently due to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Not sure how many people will want to see this in the cinema though; how about a DVD Release?

CAMELOT THEATER in Greenville, S.C. shows unusual films. I believe it may be just the place that might show this film. My husband has recently been diagnosed with ALS.

My Course at University (Film and Television at Lincoln University) is full of enthusiastic media students who would love to see this type of film. We have a cinema come theatre on campus which could screen the film. My tutor has given me permission to host an event here should you be interested, and as the head of the Media department with links to the Drama department too, she has promised to help advertise the screening should one go ahead.

We’ve also got a nice cinema called the pheonix in Leicester. I’m not sure if its somewhere that you have approached, but they like screening independent films. I don’t have the time to work with you to get it screened there, but I am happy to work along side those at my university to get in screened in Lincoln.

I was told about the film by my friend who lost both of her parents a few years back – she hadn’t seen it herself, scared that it would be too upsetting remembering her fathers death, but it would mean a lot to her for more people to see it.

I am living with MND so personally it may be difficult for me to mobilise people, but with the correct level of publicity there are a number of small cinemas who would be willing to show it, and receive adequate interest from the public. I would of course be willing to attend such showings.

Suitable venues could be:

Daneside Theatre, Congleton, Cheshire.

Town Hall, Congleton.

The Heritage Centre, Macclesfield

Vue Cinema, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffs

Odeon Cinema, Stoke-on-Trent
