With the official cinematic release of our Rush Documentary starting to hit theatres around the world I wanted to remind everyone that the Canadian screenings are this weekend!
Rush Documentary Screenings – USA
For a a complete list of available theatres in the US, jump over to RushBeyondTheLightedStage.com and see if the film is showing in your city. If not, gas up the truck and get ready for a road trip! Some cities are SOLD OUT so make sure to grab them while you can.
Rush Documentary Screenings – Canada
For those of us in Canada the best place to check out local screenings is at the Netro.ca site. Check for Rush Documentary Showtimes in Canada. Some cities have 2 nights planned so be sure to grab tickets for both because we may never get this chance again!!
Rush Documentary Screenings – Rest of World
For the rest of the world, many screenings have come and gone. The European screening site is showing listings for Brazil and England so if you are roaming around those 2 countries have a look at the Global Rush Documentary Screenings site and check your local times.
Short and sweet today, and be sure to keep an eye on the official Rush Beyond the Lighted Stage Facebook page !!

I know I’m sorta late getting this out, but…..
Well, they’ve done it again, in a different city with a new documentary. Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage has just won the Tribeca Heineken® Audience Award. Hot on the heels after winning a similar fan choice award for Iron Maiden: Flight 666 at the South by Southwest festival in Austin Texas last year. This time however the award comes with a niftly little cash award of $25,000. Come on!! Well done guys. This simply confirms the ability of Banger Films to script and develop ground breaking documentaries which step outside of the standard ‘music documentary’ formula.
Along with this amazing news, here are a few more video links from various sources as they popped up in the news feeds. Or check out the posts over at Rush is a Band for some killer posts with links throughout!
Short gala night piece from the HotDocs opening night with some face time with Scot and Sam and Rush (Yup, the fellahs made it to the Canadian Premiers as they should, well done!).
Go read up on Day 2 of Hot Docs. Then check out some more of the same regurgitated story of the Tribeca fans choice award. As if we can get enough of that. Thanks ABC News! Here’s some more link love for The Wrap cuz I think the title is great. There are also a ton of magnificent films that passed through town on the Tribeca bill, check out a few news pieces on them in this feed. Thanks again D for sending over this link of some interview footage of Sam and Scot and whatnot.
Oh and this guy is having a great time listening to himself talk. It is great reading actually.
