Q: I live in a foreign country and want to sign up for your newsletter, but I am having technical difficulties.
A: We’ve noticed that some zip codes outside of the United States don’t work well with our form. If you encounter this problem, please use the “contact us” page to send us your e-mail, your first name and your last name. We will add you to the mailing list on our end.
Q: Do you sell prints of Bonestell’s paintings?
A: Unfortunately, no. That is not something we do.
Q: I want to find more fans of Chesley Bonestell like myself!
Q: How can I bring Chesley Bonestell: A Brush With The Future to screen in my town?
A: We deeply appreciate your interest in screening the film. You can host a screening of your own! Find a venue that will host a screening, build up an audience for our film, and send us a Screening Request Form. We'll get back to you with the screening fees and logistics.
Q: I'm a HUGE Bonestell fan, and I know a lot of people would love this movie! How can I get this film to screen at my local theater?
A: Contact your local theater and provide them with our website, along with your interest in seeing the film. Requests from multiple people like yourself will do even more to convince the theater manager that there is a paying audience for this film!
Q: What is a DCP? Do I need it for my screening?
A: DCP stands for "Digital Cinema Package." Professional theaters use a DCP to ingest a film into their projector. Only those that have a projection system capable of playing a DCP should select this option on the Screening Request Form. Otherwise, a Blu-Ray or DVD will do just fine.
Q: You previously made the film available to educators through Tugg EDU but I can no longer find that option on your website. What happened?
A: We were notified by Tugg EDU on January 31, 2020, that the company was permanently closing their doors after nine years in business and would no longer offering any films in their catalog. We are presently exploring alternative options for making our film available to educators and institutions. We suggest subscribing to our newsletter for further updates on our progress in that area of distribution.
