Malka Media Group, Patchwork Media, and Director Jason Aron are pleased to announce that the documentary feature film BACK IN TIME will premiere in Hollywood, California on October 21, 2015, as a part of the We’re Going Back fanfest honoring the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. The film will release digitally and on Bluray/DVD on or shortly after October 22nd, and will be available for preorder via a Kickstarter campaign beginning March 9th.
BACK IN TIME offers an unprecedented look into the overwhelming cultural significance of the Back to the Future trilogy. The film crew trekked across more than a dozen states and through two continents capturing footage for the feature. They conducted more than 50 interviews with cast, crew, and some of the trilogy’s biggest fans. The film features cast members including Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Tompson; production members like Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, and Alan Silvestri; as well as fans like Dan Harmon, Stephen Clark, Adam F. Goldberg, and Joe Walser.
The new Kickstarter campaign (the feature initially funded shooting through Kickstarter in mid-2013) is aimed at funding enhanced post production work on the film, plus expanding the film’s distribution to include exhibition at festivals across the country, allowing more people a chance to see it on the big screen. Backers who pledge to the new campaign are being offered perks which range from digital copies of the film to branded shirts, posters, and signed memorabilia, as well as some truly exclusive collectables and packages.
