|Support the Movie—and the Cause|
A win-win situation: Tying the Knot can help LGBT Groups raise funds and improve outreach, while a strong early showing for TYING THE KNOT will assure its expansion to as many as 100 markets nationwide. That means a powerful message of tolerance can reach millions of Americans.
To LGBT groups, we offer :
• Discounted block of tickets
• The chance to ADOPT-A-SCREENING as your official event
• Help with organizing pre and post-screening events: house parties, panel discussions, town halls, Q+As with Director Jim de Seve or anything else we can think of!
• An excellent educational resource for equal marriage rights
During three years of interacting with LGBT Groups while shooting TYING THE KNOT, we’ve realized many groups don’t have resources to produce effective educational materials let alone an educational film. TYING THE KNOT is one-stop shopping on the subject of equal marriage rights. We hope LGBT groups will want to utilize this tool and allocate their resource to other pressing priorities.
Our committed distributor, Roadside Attractions, is promoting the film through the media. This will help LGBT Groups to reach out to people who would not normally come to their events.
PFLAG Gets Behind TYING THE KNOT
“PFLAG is extremely excited to partner with an award-winning filmmaker and PFLAG friend Jim de Sève.
This film is a great way to introduce your friends, co-workers and neighbors to the marriage equality issue - it explores aspects of the issue like family dynamics, legal ramifications and the history of marriage in sometimes humorous, sometimes heart-breaking ways. Most importantly, this is a film that reveals the human side of discrimination in a way that EVERYONE can understand.
If you would like to find out more about TYING THE KNOT and how you and your chapter can attend a screening, please contact Taylor Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202.467.8180 ext 213.”
