Girl Rising will premiere in New York, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, and on demand in hundreds of cities across the country. Theatrical distribution platform, Gathr, empowers people everywhere to follow a few simple steps to crowdsource Girl Rising into movie theaters across the nation.
"The response to Girl Rising at Sundance confirms what we felt: this is a powerful, beautiful and important film about the world-changing power of educating girls," said Holly Gordon, Executive Director of 10x10. "The call to action is clear. Watch the trailer, feel inspired, step up and then sign up to host a screening of Girl Rising in your local movie theater. Transformative change happens community by community and everyone should be a part of this revolution."
A portion of Girl Rising ticket sales will go to support girls' programs around the world through the 10x10 Fund for Girls' Education. The Fund goes to 10x10's high-impact network of non-profit partners and leaders in girls' education: A New Day Cambodia, CARE, Girl Up/United Nations Foundation, Partners in Health, Plan International USA, Room to Read, UNICEF, and World Vision.
