MacGillivray Freeman Films is pleased to announce it has acquired the giant screen institutional distribution rights to Apollo 11: First Steps (working title), the all-archival, immersive documentary film from director Todd Douglas Miller and Statement Pictures. The approximately 40-minute film captures the experience of the first manned lunar mission, one of humanity’s greatest feats, featuring never before seen large format footage. The film is slated for release in May 2019 in time for the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon on July 20, 1969. Watch a teaser trailer here.
“We are so excited to bring this exceptional project to institutional giant screen theatres and to share this extraordinary moment in time with audiences,” said Patty Collins, Director of Global Sales at MacGillivray Freeman Films. “What could be more perfect for the giant screen than man’s first steps on the moon?”
