Church members living outside of Utah can participate in a “demand it campaign” to draw the Church's new documentary to theaters in their area.
The Meet the Mormons documentary marks the first time in history that the Church will release a feature-length documentary commercially; it will be released on October 10.
The new feature-length film highlights the lives of six Latter-day Saints who live across the globe—in areas spanning from the Himalayan mountains of Nepal to the rain forests of Costa Rica to the Salt Lake Valley. Though the film was financed by the Church, its net proceeds will be donated to charity.
“The intent of the film is to help people understand what our members are really like,” said producer Jeff Roberts.
“If you are living outside of Utah, this is the only way to ensure that Meet the Mormons will get booked at a theater near you. Everyone should go to the website today and request the film in their area,” said Devin Shelley of the Church’s Publishing Services Department.
Bishops and branch presidents in the United States should receive a poster about the movie for the meetinghouse. You can also access and print the poster online.
