One Mile Away in cinemas and new engaging audiences.
One Mile Away will has a theatrical release across the UK from March 29th. We need your help to take the film beyond the box office to reach communities entangled with issues addressed by this important film.
The #RoadToFreedom Tour will start on the 15th April (start of the summer school term) and carry on until the autumn. We plan to visit as many schools, youth centres and young offenders institutes as we can, to directly speak to the people who need to hear the message of the film.
The primary audience for this film are young people living in inner cities, who wouldn't usually go to the cinema or tune in to watch a documentary on tv. In order to reach these people we are going on the road, and we need your help!
Please support our Kickstarter campaign before April 11th!
