Gravitas Ventures and IndiePix are going to be releasing WE LIVE IN PUBLIC on March 1st, 2010 into tens of millions of homes on VOD (video on demand) and across digital platforms. The video on-demand release will be accompanied by a multi-city simultaneous theatrical event that will utilize the very technology the award winning documentary explores. After our digital debut, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC will have its national DVD release March 2 through New York-based independent distributor IndiePix.
The March 1, 2010 Multi-City Simulcast Event is a trail-blazing conclusion to what has been an aggressive 2009 festival tour, online campaign, and 15-city theatrical run. The excitement generated our release over the last year has already caused five major cities in the US and Canada to sign on to participating in this ground-breaking March 1st event. These include Los Angeles, CA, Denver, CO, Chicago, IL, New York, NY and Vancouver, BC – where a simultaneous screening of the film will take place followed by an interactive Q&A with Timoner and Harris from a performance space in Chicago. Distribution company, IndiePix, will host the New York screening. Each of the participating cities will be linked via a live webcast, with attendees able to participate in the live Q&A in theater and online audiences able to participate via Twitter. Celebrities are scheduled to participate from their home computers and webcams, and the event will include live performance pods, including fire throwers, trapeze artists and celebrity DJs that will continue the live webcast following the Q&A. The multi-city simulcast event will be webcast live on weliveinpublicthemovie.com. Our film is currently available for pre-order with a 15% discount prior to the DVD release!
