Is it getting released in the states? :(

At 12:47 PM, Blogger Cindi said...

Please bring your film to the U.S.!!! I deeply respect and admire the film crew for immersing themselves in the Rwandan culture to make this film. I was in Rwanda last year as a volunteer and found the country beautiful and the people kind. But it's extremely hard to be such a remote place and see how poverty and tribal tensions are impacting the people. It's hard to be there and see it and then leave for a comfortable existence elsewhere. But with your leaving, you are telling their story and making a difference through the telling. We're listening!

And what about Germany? Will we get to see it here?

At 7:12 PM, Blogger Carly said...

Thank you for making this movie. I hope that you try to bring it over to the U.S., so it can have a great impact over here.

Currently we don't have a distributor in the US.

Here is a list of all the other countries the film will be released in though.

Benelux and Switzerland
South Africa

I truly hope that you get a distributor in the US. I am a UK teacher in the US at the moment and we are about to study that period of history and from what I have seen this would be a great film for students to watch and to truly appreciate and uinderstand what happened.

At 6:37 PM, Blogger Maya said...

Is there anything that we can do here in the U.S. to help the film pick up a distributor?

At 6:46 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hello, I was wondering if you know when it'll be released in Israel?
I haven't heard anything about a release here so far.

At 12:56 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Any news on a Rwandan screening of the film?

According to the BBC it was due to be screened yesterday March 22nd...I found it strange that living in Kigali I heard nothing about a screening here

At 10:01 AM, Blogger Administrator said...

Some answers to your questions:

America release: Hopefully we will have an American distributor soon.

Israel release: There is no set date yet for the release in Israel but it will be shown there in the near future.

Rwandan Premiere: The Kigali screening is taking place this coming Monday (27th) in the Stadium.

Firstly, congratulations on creating a much needed film, hopefully one that will leave an impact on its audience as great as Rwanda leaves its impact on you. Im living in Australia and have have been part of the crew filming a documentary in Rwanda- "Dancing In Rwanda". As Shooting Dogs is not being released in Australia, I cant wait to get my hands on a copy asap. The Kigali screening should be an amazing moment for all involved in the film and for the people of Rwanda. Cheers.

i hope "shooting dogs" will be released in the u.s., too.

At 3:06 AM, Blogger Evelyn Ng said...

Will the film be released in Singapore? It would be very a powerful teaching tool for our students here. Will the film be available on DVD and how could I obtain a copy, please? Thank you.

At 6:08 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I see on the list it is going to be released in Canada!!! YAY!! Do you know when or where exactly? Thanks so much I really appreciate it! I am a highschool student in Montreal and am eagerly awaiting seeing it.

At 7:49 AM, Anonymous Rachel Ward said...

Let me be YET ANOTHER voice that desperately wants this released in the United States!! Hotel Rwanda did very well here, and probably wasn't made near as authentically as Shooting Dogs was. I hope you find an American distributor SOON!!!! Will check back here for updates, thanks so much!!

any word on this film coming to the US? Have they found a distributor?

At 2:26 AM, Blogger Administrator said...

As of yet, we still don't have a distributor in the U.S.

However, all the supportive comments and enquiries we have had from you have been passed on to the producers so… fingers crossed.

We don't have a distributor in Singapore or the Netherlands at the moment but watch this space.

Thank you again for all your kind words. Its great to know that people all over the world want to see the film.

Hi. I'm trying to get a hold of David Belton. I currently run a photo project with orphans of the Rwandan Genocide -
We have an important exhibition coming up at the Holocaust Museum in the US and perhpas their is an opportunity to premiere the film in the US in conjunction with the exhibition. Additionally, we have a full set of the children's work housed in Belgium that could travel with the film. We were exhibited with the US release of Hotel Rwanda - and the children's photography is a wonderful and hopeful look into the future. If you get this and are interested in discussing opportunities, please contact me at

Could you please give us some details of the release of the movie in Mexico (dates, distributor, etc) thanks a lot

At 10:32 AM, Blogger Thomas said...

I'm speaking for a group of friends on a college campus in America who is greatly awaiting the distribution of this film in the States. Keep up the hard work and keep us informed!!!

At 3:01 AM, Anonymous Yoga said...

I wonder why you dont bring this film to Leeds?? there are lots of student around here, which I think is a good opportunity for you to spread the message of the movie

At 6:22 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

This movie is more realistic than Hotel Rwanda. It's a good message for the World leaders and The UN secretary. And for the dictators leaders of african countries like Zimbabwe, Angola,...etc, this is a wake up call. We need peace and development. The continuing conflitc should end by clear talks. My Thanks to all of you who made possible this movie.

is it going to be relased in Australia

At 10:58 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

it's a pity that it isn't on show more widely. Unless you live in London, it seems that it isn't on in your local cinema!

thank you for making this film please let us know how we can get copies of this film in canada.

I have been to Rwanda and am going back in May. An amazing people with a painful past...yet with great hope for the future. I believe this is another step in the right direction. The world has to be aware of the the genocides that they have turned their backs on. The United States turned their backs more than anyone and the more movies like this that will flood our theatres and TV's the better. Thanks for making this movie. Hoping that the US will pick it up and ditribute it.

A film like this should have a massive general release. Why do we have to wait until April 28th to get it in Oxford? People should be seeing this film. Also reading Lt.Gen Romeo Daillare's book "Shake Hands With The Devil" "Season of Blood" by Fergal Keane, and "We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families" by Philip Gourevitch.

Hi there
I am really waiting to see this film, but whats this? NO RELEASES ANYWHERE IN NORTHERN IRELAND??
whats going on !?
Please please please bring this film to NI.

At 1:12 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Having been to Rwanda and to see The Kigali Memorial Centre was a very sad day. To see children who were in the centre, watching their history ( maybe their parents )crying and inconsolible.
This film needs to be shown everywhere in the world.

Answers to some of your questions regarding screenings of SHOOTING DOGS in your UK region:

Leeds: The film is scheduled to open in Bradford on April 21st.

N.Ireland: Eclipse Pictures are distributing the film in Ireland. SHOOTING DOGS is scheduled to show in Belfast mid-May.

YOUR LOCAL CINEMA: We've got the film and we want to show it in as many cinemas as possible. If you want the film to show in your local cinema, please go and tell them! This will hopefully encourage them to book the film. We will then endeavour where possible to provide a copy.

Many thanks again for your support. We are delighted that you are all so keen to see the film.

What can citizens of the U.S. do to get your film distributed here? Could we as citizens who were not aware of the 1994 genocide help now to rebuild Rwanda with proceeds from viewing this movie?

At 10:59 PM, Blogger zhemile said...

i am a second year law student in new york concentrating on refugee and asylum law. i am from nigeria but i was in rwanda for a year during 2002 compiling stories of the women that survived rape and torture during the genocide. it does not surprise me that you do not have a US distributor as of yet. Americans have become so obsessed with themselves, they ignore the plight and the reality of the rest of the world. i remebmber during the genocide the news wasn't even covering the story, just as the news noe does not cover sudan or AIDS or anything other than celebrities and acquiring material things. there is so much of the world that americans don't see, the truths and realities that they don't want to acknowledge. they see africa as a dark mass in the periphery of their collective imagination. please let me know how i can have this movie played at my law school and at other university venues. i am sure i can raise the money though my school--let me know. we must reflect our complexity and our culture as black people, as africans, we cannot be called uncivilized, barbaric or tribalistic anymore. civil wars in the west are seen as legitimate political expressions, but in africa it is always degraded and relegated to the realm of "tribal" conflict. I remember the news never talked about rwandas colonial history, or what lead to an atmosphere where such things could happen. instead the story was covered as though to say "there they go again those emotional hotblooded africans, they cannot control themselves, let's keave them to it, it's what they know, what they are."

What can we do to get a distributor in the US? I want to see this movie so bad! I really liked Hotel Rwanda and Sometimes In April. It would be great to see a sort of other perspective of the Genocide in 1994.

will this film be released in Australia?

Am really excited about seeing your film. However the shown has been and gone. Can be purhcase a DVD off the internet?

We have been anxiously awaiting the screening of the movie in South Africa. I see that SA is the last entry on your list for future releases. Any chance of bumping us up the list?
My husband worked in Rwanda post-genocide, and our family went to visit him on a few occasions. The history of the country is unforgettable, but now it is a peaceful and beautiful little country.

The film screened at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Fest in the US this weekend. It's an amazing film!

I saw the film yesterday in Faro, Portugal. Impressive how human beings can be so easily manipulated and so brutal to each other. I wonder if we could ever achieve the so called humanity. Everybody should view this film, the reality sometimes is far worst than most violent fiction...

I'm from Lake Charles, Louisiana, but moved to Massachusetts last year and I'm sorry I missed seeing your film premiere at Banners.

Do you have any word on when it might be released in the US? From the word of mouth I've recieved from people who've seen it -who say that even two months later they can't stop thinking about it -everyone needs to see this film.

Hotel Rwanda, Shooting Dogs . . .
Many films of past tragedies may tell us about cruelty, shall humanity learn ? Hopefully ... !

Just wondering once again if it's still scheduled for release in Israel because it didn't come out here yet and it's been a while.

I am one more person for an U.S. release. Maybe the distributors from Hotel Rwanda can help you guys secure a distributor. Just saw a BBC interview with John Hurt
--he really is an actor with all heart. Reminds me of Don Cheadle from Hotel Rwanda. This is much more than a movie, it's an important reminder about from our history.

I am a cinema owner/film buyer in Los Angeles seeking to exhibit the film in the Palm Springs market (100 miles outside of Los Angeles). I am willing to deal with the producers directly, rather than wait for a U.S. disributor. My cinemas performed very successfully with the film HOTEL RWANDA in its origiinal U.S. release. Please see our website at and contact me at:

I am a survivor of the genocide of the Rwandan tutsi people, I live the US. I survived miraculously from the school mentioned in shooting dogs. Any other survivors from ETO Kicukiro out there? Please let me know. I could been one of the thousands who perished in that school, but I was lucky to be evacuated with the expatriates on 4/11/94 night. This film tells the story of the genocide more courageousely than Hotel Rwanda. The world needs to know the truth. As we watch this film, let's not forget the survivors especially the orphans and the widows. I am involved as much as I can. I can be contacted through my website. We need this film in the US ASAP. Peace to all.

I am an Australia and i lived in Africa as a tour leader for a year and a half and what you see there... well lets just say you have depicted the true Africa much more then movies like Hotel Rowanda.. I have tried to educate my friends and family about Africa and how it REALLY is but it is so much easier to get through to people if they SEE it... and you have shown this in your movie... your movie dragged me so far in, i felt like i was the one trapped in that school about to die.. please please send this movie to Australia.. any reason why you hadn't planned to?

Hi, I work with a Human Rights Film Festival based at Oxford Brookes University and we were hoping to be able to screen Shooting Dogs at the 2008 festival. I'd be really grateful if you could direct me to the right person to request permission for a public screening from. The festival is completely free and open to all
