It's been a while since we've been told about the documentary " A Billion Lives". If Aaron Biebert and his team spend a lot of time presenting the documentary around the world, they still work to make it available to the greatest number. Indeed, A Billion Lives should very soon arrive on television channels, streaming and even Blu-ray.
In a statement released a short time ago, we learned that the film crew took several months to finalize the release of A Billion Lives on various broadcast platforms around the world.
« Main Media", The new distributor of the documentary has negotiated with many platforms and television channels proposing a broadcast of A Billion Lives. Among them figure HBO (USA), AMC (USA), MBC (Middle East), YLC (Finland), MediaLaan, RTL, ProSieben (Germany), Telefilms (Argentina), Bell Media, and Turner.
Comme Aaron Biebert the film has generated a real international interest thanks to the work of diffusion of the vapoteurs and the supports. Over the past six months, the world's first spectacular documentaries have also created excitement.
And all that was not simple, Aaron Biebert, the director of A Billion Lives explains that if " This has certainly been a rewarding experience, rarely a movie with this level of support and that has so many important messages has been so ignored by the media and by Hollywood.". If it took time, the documentary was finally able to win and the possibilities of television broadcasts were a real surprise for the team.
A Billion Lives is about to be broadcast at the cinema in Germany, Austria, France and perhaps other countries. Commitments have been made for the film to be broadcast at least 10 times in Germany and Austria to allow local supporters to invite media and politicians.
All countries currently hosting the film in their theaters (United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand) will continue to broadcast it for years by making requests to Demand.Film (International) or to Tugg (US).
In many countries, the film will not be broadcast on television (this seems to be the case for France), so the team of A Billion Lives has decided to launch it on Itunes with a promotion that will put it in the lead on the day of the release. After a successful launch on iTunes, Aaron Biebert expects the documentary to be available on other platforms (Amazon, Google Play, etc ...).
According to the director, digital streaming is the best chance for the film to make money in order to finance another film that will detail the repercussions it may have had.
In addition to a digital version, the team A Billion Lives expects the release of a Blu-Ray limited edition with special content (probably a chapter with Stanton Glantz removed in the current version).
According to Aaron Biebert, it would be possible to order it wholesale but the team can not afford to sell to the unit for the moment (lack of staff). The director relies on licensed companies to buy the film in large quantities and help distribute it via their websites or shops.
