There are currently three ways to watch Injecting Aluminum: in a theater, via the DVD, and the digital stream rental. We will also be rolling out a licensing program soon to allow private events, medical offices, and educational institutions to show the film.
Our international sales team is working hard to finalize deals in territories outside of the U.S. and Canada. It does take some time to put these deals together and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
A film distributor normally works with a distributor in each territory as they are experts in any laws or regulations that affect film importation. They also have relationships with the theatres, retail accounts, broadcasters and digital platforms. They also oversee the rollout of the film with an eye and ear to localized cultural differences or sensitivities.
As some of you may have heard, Injecting Aluminum will be available for pre-order on DVD and an exclusive stream option in the U.S. and Canada ONLY as of May 2017. The DVDs sold in the U.S. will be Region 1, and protected against piracy with order options geo-blocked (meaning the order will automatically not be processed to addresses outside of U.S. and Canada. This is the usual practice when a film is released while terms are still being discussed with other countries, as movies are never released in every country at the same time.
For our international supporters who daily express their passion for Injecting Aluminum, don't worry your patience will soon pay off!
Our distributor, Cinema Libre Studio, is actively communicating with distributors in all the main foreign territories. As each country has unique processes regulating film distribution, this is the route we are pursuing to ensure the film has the maximum impact upon release.
We have started Facebook pages in some countries; please join as this shows demand and lets us share news pertaining to your country.
For the immediate future, we will not be granting individual screening licenses except for Film Festivals. As soon as we've brought distribution partners on board, we'll let you know via the newsletter.
Injecting Aluminum has partnered with Gathr to introduce a Theatrical on Demand program that allows anyone to create a screening request to show Injecting Aluminum in their city. More details will be revealed on this shortly.
Once a request is made, other patrons can reserve tickets. Once enough tickets are reserved, the screening is booked with the theater and charges are made. Learn more about this program here.
We will be rolling out an "event screening" program for special events, festivals/conventions, and smaller screenings soon.
If you would like to request the filmmakers at your event then you can do so here. We cannot guarantee that the filmmakers will be available or that we can respond to every request.

We ask that groups DO NOT ask the theater about this, nor that they do this outside of their reserved auditorium.
Thank you. If you've signed up for the newsletter and checked boxes such as "I want to help with social media," we'll reach out to you by email when we are ready to kick off a "workgroup" in your city once the film is booked there. We also ask for help via Facebook. Keep your eyes peeled.
You can support the filmmakers by purchasing merchandise here for the US.
Many of the amazing people we've met on the road have been asking for a supportive place where families can share their personal stories. Another film, created by different filmmakers which is also distributed by Cinema Libre Studio, is VAXXED which can help you connect.
