Distribution in schools
Initial funding for a 30 minute film appropriate for the classroom with an educational curriculum developed by The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in Cincinnati has been received from the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati.
We are seeking funds for the production of the educational packets (curriculum and film) and teacher trainings throughout the United States, using local Holocaust Centers as training sites. We propose a coordinator, funded for 2 years, to manage the program nationwide. Our goal is to raise an additional $268,050 to fully fund this program.
International TV Distribution
This is truly an international story with a worldwide message of moral courage and the good that can be achieved by action. The more people see the film, the more impact it will have. Your support could assure its broadcast in other countries. Full funding for this aspect is $30,000.
Domestic Distribution – Live Screenings in the top 20 Markets
Although the film was broadcast on television throughout the USA from April 2013 through May of 2015, many people were not aware or missed their opportunity to see it at that time. Live screenings at museums or other venues in large cities creates excitement and draws attention to the film’s message. Often newspaper articles accompany the screenings which also adds visibility. We plan to have live screenings with a panel discussion afterwards in all top 20 markets. Full funding for those markets we have not yet reached is $32,900.
Domestic TV Distribution
We would like “Rescue” to be broadcast for another season on PBS stations nationwide. Requests for rebroadcasts come in often from viewers. Funding of $50,250 would make this a reality.
Online Access to complete interviews
There is a wealth of information in the 45 interviews we did to produce this film. We would like to make this valuable research available to the public on our website. Each interview costs $4,000 for adaptation to online viewing. Full funding would require $225,000
