Now for the news: Last week we completed a deal with First Run Features for North American
distribution. First Run Features is one of the pre-eminent distributors of independent films and
documentaries in the country. Their roster includes such notable films as "Circo", "The Man
Nobody Knew", "The Twilight Samurai", "Bhutto", "The Trials of Henry Kissinger", "Ballerina",
"49 UP", and "A Jihad for Love". They have extensive experience distributing feature-length
documentaries and love our film, so we are have landed in very good hands. In fact, they are
a company we had identified years ago as our "dream" company to partner with. Welp, the
dream has come true.
Ok, so what does this deal mean? This means the film will be available on DVD and likely several
digital outlets for download, which may include Amazon, iTunes, Netflix, and Hulu. FRF will also
be seeking a broadcast deal with a cable network. When will it be available? We just had a conversation
with them yesterday about a release date. They are keen to time the release with the real D-Day
anniversary as well as the 2013 Oklahoma D-Day, so the film will be released in May. We'll post
here the instant it becomes available.
This has been a long road for us and we couldn't have done it without you guys - the OKDDAY c
ommunity. Your support and patience helped keep us going along the way. We couldn't be more
thrilled with the news and hope you are, too. So give yourselves a pat on the back because, by
golly, we made it!
