Opening in New York at the IFC Center

To whom it may concern,

I am writing on behalf of Sundance Selects in hopes of collaborating with you to promote our upcoming documentary, Roseanne For President!. This feature film follows comedienne Roseanne Barr through her 2012 unconventional presidential campaign and underscores her comedic career. Roseanne For President! highlights Roseanne’s socialist involvement in the Green Party and Peace and Freedom Party all while trying to fight the power of a two-party system.  Director Eric Weinrib captures Roseanne’s raw and emotional journey from comedy to politics using archival footage and interviews from various headliners such as filmmaker Michael Moore and comedienne Rosie O’Donnell.

Whether in support of her candidacy or skeptical of her seriousness, any audience can enjoy this light-hearted and entertaining film.  Roseanne For President! illustrates every leg of the race to the White House from emotional downfalls to hilariously out-of-the-box campaign tactics.  Roseanne For President! is an authentic depiction of the tenacity of the unapologetically honest Roseanne Barr.

We firmly believe that your students/members/patrons will be captivated and entertained by Roseanne For President!, and we would appreciate your support in promoting the release of the film.  Roseanne For President!premieres at the IFC Center and on Demand July 1st, 2016.  We have included a link to the trailer that you may use for any newsletters, social media, or other forms of display.  If you are interested in working with us, we are prepared to share a pre-screening of the film to one or a few of your organization’s managers. Please contact me for additional material and inquiries into screening opportunities.  Thank you for your time and we hope to hear from you soon.
