CODEBREAKER Reaching National Audience by Patrick Sammon

CODEBREAKER, an award winning drama documentary, tells the story of Alan Turing, the genius mathematician credited as the driving intellectual force behind the development of the computer in the 1930s. Turing also played a pivotal role in helping the Allies win World War II by breaking the German naval Enigma code. Ten years later, instead of receiving accolades, Turing’s life was destroyed when he faced criminal prosecution because he was gay.

The theatrical distribution of this unique film got off the ground because of important help from the International Movie Trailer Festival. A member of the CODEBREAKER production team was introduced to the IMTF team. They eventually got this film on the radar of TODpix, our eventual theatrical distribution partner. The unique on demand distribution model of TODpix, has allowed CODEBREAKER to reach a national audience with screenings in theaters across the country. So far CODEBREAKER has been screened in Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington, DC and New York City. It has been exciting to see the very positive reactions from audiences across the country. Matt R, who saw the DC premiere called it, “A stellar, informative, affecting film about one of history’s unheralded heroes.”

Additional screenings will be scheduled around the country on January 17th. You can request a screening in your U.S. city by going to TODpix.
