Earth Days will premiere on Facebook

We have recently heard that a feature-length documentary film will premiere on Facebook, this documentary is called Earth Days and will be streaming live at 8.00pm EST on April 11th.

This premiere will come over one week earlier than the PBS premiere, this is currently set to be shown over-the-air at 9.00pm EST on April 19th.

The film itself is said to look into the history of Earth Day in the United States, the film has been pretty well received on the whole when it has been playing at festivals and select theaters.

The video streaming is made possible thanks to a company called Brand Networks, their social-streaming platform will allow the first-ever “feature-length documentary to stream on Facebook”.

If the live stream is successful it seems likely that more less-mainstream films and documentaries may look into this as a possible way of getting their productions available to such a wide audience.
