Makers Of Academy Award® Nominated Documentary, The Invisible War, Urge More Action

The following are statements regarding The Invisible War , which was nominated earlier today for an Academy Award® in the Best Documentary category:

Statement of Kirby Dick, director of  The Invisible War :

"We're thrilled and gratified by this honor. However, to truly honor our service members we need to stop the epidemic of rape in the military.

"What's different about this film, in comparison to my other films, is that rape in the military is STILL a burning issue and one that we can profoundly impact by changing policies within the military. Today, on the day Oscar® nominations are announced, 50 more men and women will be sexually assaulted in the military, according to the Department of Defense estimates. We hope the attention this nomination brings will send a message to the Department of Defense to protect our women and men in uniform."

Statement of Chris McGurk, Chairman and CEO of Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and distributor of The Invisible War:

“We are extremely proud that The Invisible War has been acknowledged by the Academy with this nomination. Not only did the filmmakers, led by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, create a powerful, evocative and haunting film, their documentary is helping to bring systemic changes in the way our military treats both the victims and perpetrators of the terrible crime of sexual assault. However, despite the significant progress that has been made since the film’s release, the transformation in our military’s policy and culture regarding this issue is far from complete. We hope this nomination will bring even more focus on Kirby and Amy’s objective of ensuring sexual assault will never again be an occupational hazard for our military service members."

About the Film:

“CRITICS’ PICK: This is not a movie that can be ignored…the candor and bravery displayed in the telling is admirable.” – The New York Times

“A poignant, powerful documentary that just might change the system.” – TIME

Winner, Audience Award, 2012 Sundance Film Festival
