It’s been an exciting time for LIFE ITSELF! Our Indiegogo campaign launched at the end of November, and thanks to the support of Roger Ebert fans around the world, we raised nearly $154,000!

Because of your generosity, we were able to finish the film in time to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014. Sundance was one of Roger’s favorite festivals, and to premiere there was especially fitting for both Roger and Steve James.

The premiere was also streamed simultaneously over the internet by VHX to Indiegogo backers worldwide, an unprecedented feat called a "Film Industry Game Changer".

(If you backed the Indiegogo campaign have not received any email from VHX with your redemption code, please contact lifeitself@kartemquin.com and/or support+lifeitself@vhx.tv).
