New Film 30,000 DAYS to Premiere with Over 100,000 Screenings Worldwide
On September 13th, over 100,000 participants all over the world (with the number still growing every day) will screen Emmy-nominated film studio Let It Ripple's global premiere of the brand-new short film "30,000 DAYS," which examines how people can live a life of meaning and purpose and explores the history of different philosophies around asking questions about living a good life.
This is a record number for one film's premiere, coinciding with the fourth annual Character Day scheduled for Wednesday, September 13, 2017, presented by Let It Ripple, which will explore meaning, purpose and the Science of character through a LiveCast Q&A with prominent global thought leaders like the Dali Lama, MOBY, Krista Tippet, Angela Duckworth and more.
Spearheaded by Tiffany Shlain, Emmy-nominated filmmaker, thought leader and founder of The Webby Awards, Character Day highlights recent breakthroughs in the social Science and neuroscience behind character development, and provides the tools (films, discussion kits, online resources), for free, for millions of people to engage and develop the character strengths needed to thrive in today's world.
Over the past ten years, Let it Ripple has created and distributed 30 films, engaged over 50 million people in dialogue, pioneered a new way of making films called "Cloud Filmmaking," where they make films collaboratively with people all over the world, and founded a new model to start global conversations with screenings and discussions across all continents on the same day, with a combination of live and virtual events. The annual global day Character Day started with only 1,500 events four years ago, and the first-ever 50/50 Day-a global conversation about how to get to gender parity (which also premiered a brand new film)-had over 11,000 events on May 20.
