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."

I saw this film last night at Gloucester Guild Hall and I was deeply touched by it. Neils courage and selflessness and the care and support his wife provided was truly inspirational. I did not know much about this awful disease just little pieces of information from my mum as her Grandfather passed away from it years ago. After seeing this film I was shocked by how little people has turned up to see it, I guess people do not know much about the illness unless they know someone who has been diagnosed. I really hope that Neils legacy to share this film with more and more people is granted. I think it should be shown on television then people really would see it.
