Last May I had the privilege of attending the premiere for the film Field of Lost Shoes, and though it’s opening in theatres September 26, it will only open in limited release. That is unless you help, there is an IndieGoGo campaign to help bring Field of Lost Shoes to more theatres. From their campaign page:
We are currently releasing this movie in 24 theaters across the country in 20 markets on Sept 26th. We would love to expand this amazing feature film. The money we raise will go towards the marketing dollars needed to expand to additional theaters. Our current theatrical release is completely funded and moving forward. We need additional money to expand this theatrical release to more markets. The top number of people donating in a particular area will allow priority placement of a theater in their market.
Field of Lost Shoes is based on the Battle of New Market fought in Virginia on May 15, 1864 in the American Civil War. The film is a touching coming of age story that follows the experiences of 7 young cadets from the Virginia Military Institute as they (and their school mates) are enlisted into active battle to defend the Shenandoah Valley. The film has a stellar ensemble cast including Zach Roerig, Max Lloyd-Jones, Luke Benward, Nolan Gould, Jason Isaacs, and Tom Skeritt.
Like other IndieGoGO campaigns this one has great incentives to those who donate, including a behind the scenes DVD that is not available to the general public. The campaign ends in 13 days (October 4, 2014) so help spread the word and donate, and bring Field of Lost Shoes to a theatre near you. For more information on the film follow them on their official twitter or Facebook page.
