The Future for “Rescue in the Philippines”
Distribution in schools
Initial funding for a 30 minute film appropriate for the classroom with an educational curriculum developed by the Holocaust and Humanity Center in Cincinnati has been received from the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati.
We are seeking funds for distribution of the educational packets (curriculum and film) and teacher trainings throughout the United States. We propose a digital educator workshop available by signing in to the Holocaust and Humanity Center website. Our goal is to raise an additional $25,000 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. Rescue in the Philippines has already been seen on TV in the Philippines and Poland and will be on TV in Israel soon. 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
We have screened the film live in 11 of the top 20 markets. Those still to be reached are Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle, Tampa, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Cleveland, Orlando and Sacramento.” Live screenings at museums or other venues creates excitement and draws attention to the film’s message. Often newspaper articles accompany the screenings which also adds visibility. Funding per city is $1,000.
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. With 20 now complete and available on the website, we would like to finish the other 25. At $3,000 per interview to adapt for online viewing, $75,000 would make this a reality.
