Doc, support the film

We are working on a new DVD edition, with great new extras, that we hope to launch at the end of 2011.

If you like the film, want to honor Doc's legacy, or want just one more piece of spam mail a year, please join our mailing list.

And if you can afford it, please consider making a tax-deductible charitable contribution to the Doc DVD project.

You can make a credit card donation online, thanks to our sponsor, NYC's beloved Film Forum. 

No amount is too small -- or too big! Any money you contribute will help get the film out to others.

The biggest contribution to the film came from PBS, specifically the Independent Television Service (ITVS), which has a mandate to fund innovative programming by independents. Thanks to ITVS, and the PBS series Independent Lens, an abridged TV version of Doc had a national audience of millions. However, PBS could not cover all the costs, especially of the feature, which has been seen in festivals, theaters, and on DVD.

Grants from the New York State Council for the Arts (NYSCA), the Women in Film Finishing Fund, the Dan and Joanna Rose Foundation, the Wellspring Foundation, and many generous individuals, have almost closed the gap. But to release the new DVD we still need $25,000.

In short, we could really use your help! Can you give $25, $50, $500, $5000? It adds up quickly and is deeply appreciated. All donations are fully tax deductible charitable contributions, certified by our nonprofit fiscal sponsor, The Moving Image, Inc.

If you'd prefer to write a check, please earmark it for “Doc Humes project," make it out to Film Forum, Inc. (our 501(c)3 non-profit fiscal sponsor) and mail it to: Chad / Film Forum, Inc. / 209 West Houston Street / New York, NY 10014.

Whether or not you can give money, you can lend valuable support by helping us set up private screenings, blogging about the film,  and by joining our mailing list. That way, we can update you about future screenings, and you can help us spread the word. We don't have money for a studio marketing campaign so we need our friends to do it for us. Old fashioned word of mouth, and email, can really make a difference.
