Gravitas Ventures and IndiePix will release director Ondi Timoner’s We Live in Public across digital platforms March 1. Ironically, the 2009 Sundance Grand Jury Prize: Documentary winner is a film about the effects of the Internet. A DVD release from IndiePix will follow March 2.
The film took 10 years to make and pulls from 5,000 hours of footage on what to expect as the Internet continuously infiltrates every aspect of human life. Timoner also won the Grand Jury Prize for documentary in 2004 with DiG!, which explored the rivalry between two struggling indie bands, the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols — making Timoner the only two-time recipient of the award.
Additionally a five-city theatrical premiere will accompany the film’s March 1 release, hitting Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, New York and Vancouver, BC. The screenings will be followed by an interactive Q&A event, complete with interaction and performances from celebrities via Twitter, to be simulcast on weliveinpublicthemovie.com, where the film is available at 15% off its list price of $24.95.
Meanwhile, Timoner will be at Sundance this year (taking place Jan. 21-31 in Park City, Utah) as a juror.
“In an increasingly on-demand world, Gravitas Ventures is proud to help bring We Live in Public into tens of millions of homes,” said Nolan Gallagher, founder and CEO of Gravitas.
