What People Are Saying About Our Releases:

“So grateful for Jon's guidance in arranging a successful impact campaign through a 20-city theatrical release. As a result, our documentary raised awareness about trafficking across the nation, created opportunities to partner with local non-profits doing incredible work, gained a lot of press and buzz, and as a result helped us secure a licensing deal with STARZ, which was declined previously. When you believe in your film, work hard and have a partner like Jon with theatrical experience and vision, great things can happen. Looking forward to working with Jon on more projects.”

“The theatrical release strategy we developed with Jon Reiss and 8 Above was transformative. The approach created a rare opportunity for audiences in more than 30 cities across the country from a diversity of backgrounds to connect with the film and more than 50 part-ner organizations in a deeply meaningful way, in beautiful, accessible venues, in their own communities. Our partners have consistently shared how the events facilitated new connections, conversations and next steps toward action. I've walked away from this experience with a stronger belief than ever in the power of independent storytelling, in-person theatrical experiences, and the essential role of community-based organizations in leading change.”
