Dear Friends & Supporters:
It is with great pleasure that we announce our first major wave of national air dates across public television — Sunday, August 25th, 2013 (see all events here) — as well as 3 online community discussions on the same day via #GoogleHangout that give television viewers across the country an unique chance to pose post-film questions to THE CAMPAIGN producers and local partners … see full details below!

On Sunday, 8/25/2013, THE CAMPAIGN will be seen by audiences on WHYY in Philadelphia (2:30pm EST), KQED in Northern California (6pm PST), East Tennessee Public TV (7pm EST), Idaho Public Television (9pm MST), and WGVU in Kalamazoo (1am EST, Aug. 26th.)
In advance of this weekend’s air dates, coverage in the blog-a-sphere has been lively. Here’s a sampling from 2 terrific write-ups that have appeared: OUTTAKE ONLINE - a prominent LGBT blog from award winning writer/journalist Charlotte Robinson & What (Not) To Doc - the popular documentary film blog from renown film curator Basil Tsiokos.
Earlier this week, the film screened statewide on Colorado Public Television to enthusiastic response by local viewers (read this fantastic piece from Out Front Online.) The nation wide buzz about THE CAMPAIGN is definitely building, and as of this writing, the film is now slated for 61 air dates across 35 public television channels touching no less than 32 US markets in 12 states!
For a complete listing of air dates through September 10th, bookmark our ONLINE CALENDAR, and share it with your friends & family around the country. We’re updating it daily as new air dates are being confirmed.
