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

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

I have a few small cinemas in mind. Orfeos Erbe Kino, Mal Sehen Kino and Pupille Kino (run by the university) all in Frankfurt am Main. I have written to them all, but no reply. Perhaps it will be better coming from you :)

My sister and I are holding a screening in London on 28th June in honour of our dear Dad who died of MND 2 years ago to the day. We have sold over 100 tickets at £10 each. Half of these are friends and family but half are members of the public who have found out about the screening on the iambreathing site. We have only had it on there for a week. We could DEFINITELY get loads more people to see it. If all our 100 viewers tell just 3 friends that’s another 300 people, plus our friends who can’t make it on friday but have asked when they can see the film again. It HAS to be screened everywhere. The publicity and acclaim it’s received CANNOT be wasted. This is MNDs biggest chance of getting actual awareness across the world and increased funding to finally find a cure to this horrific disease.
