Theaters & Festivals – Death By China screenings

Typically, documentary films are shown at festivals first and then in theaters.  We did just the opposite because we wanted to open the film in theaters throughout the swing states during the 2012 presidential election to draw attention to the issue China’s exploitation of our economy.

Following this strategy, Death By China made its theatrical debut in Los Angeles and New York in June of 2012.  In the months preceding the November election, the film would be shown in theaters across the Midwest and in the swing states of Florida and Virginia, including the cities of Akron, Ann Arbor, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Youngstown.

After the election was over, Death By China then began to make a series of Official Selection festival appearances through the end of June 2013.  All total, the film was shown at more than 25 festivals – from Beaufort, South Carolina; Macon, Georgia; and New York City to Green Bay, Wisconsin; Sedona, Arizona; and San Luis Obispo, California.

As part of its festival activity, the film garnered three best documentary awards from festivals in Beverly Hills, Durango, and Studio City.  It was a Best Doc nominee at the Cape Fear Indepedendent Film Festival, was first runner up at the Myrtle Beach festival, and received a Golden Ace award from the Las Vegas Film Festival.

The most gratifying part of the theater and festival tours was the Question and Answer sessions after the film.   Viewers were highly motivated to stop buying Made in China products upon viewing the film and wanted to find ways to get involved!
