Title: Playing with FIRE Documentary
Post by: Hikester on March 19, 2019, 08:14:40 PM
Does anybody know when this documentary will be available? Online searching says “early 2019.” Also where and how will it be available? Amazon, Netflix, movies?..

The last Kickstarter update from them said late April, early May for public release.  I know they intend a theatrical release / tour, but that same update also mentioned being contacted by the "Netflix Originals" team.

Access for kickstarter backers was forecasted for late March / early April, but no specific details on that yet.

They just posted on the movie's facebook page today saying they have a big announcement in the next week. I'm thinking that's likely the premiere tour.

There was a new Kickstarter update over the weekend, saying backer availability will be mid-April.  That's still a guess, as the movie is still in post-production.  (but they have picture locked the film)  They said the theatrical release would also be mid-April.  You can arrange for a theatrical showing through tugg.com.

Carl from 1500 Days also let slip that the world premiere would be in MMM HQ.

I wonder if there would be a way to screen it at our upcoming Mustache Retreat in May? That would be a blast!

Yeah, check out tugg.  I've never used it before, but the intent was to allow self-organized screenings.  I have no idea what the costs would be, but they talked about getting up to 70 people to sign up for a scheduled showing.
