The award-winning documentary “Regarding Susan Sontag” airs on HBO starting December 8.
REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG has been having an amazing festival run, having now screened in 29 countries since April, when we premiered the film at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, wowing audiences and taking home a Special Jury Mention. We have had recent screenings at the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, the Hawaii International Film Festival, and IDFA (the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, the world’s largest documentary film festival), among others; please see our website for a complete list of festivals.
IDFA director Ally Derks picked REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG as one of the three “must-see” films of the 2014 festival, out of 300 documentaries. We were the opening night film at the Doku.Arts festival in Berlin in September—when both screenings sold out, the festival scheduled two additional screenings. The film received a Jury Special Mention at MIX Copenhagen and an Honorable Mention at Frameline, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. Team Sontag is very much looking forward to HBO broadcast premiere, shortly after two preview screenings at MOMA in New York City on December 5th and 6th.
