Sarah of No Whey Mama recently shared her review of the new documentary, "I'm Not Nuts": Living With Food Allergies, produced by Kevin J. Lindenmuth. Needless to say, she was moved by how close to home it hit, and elated at the awareness impact this film could have. For those of you whose curiosity has been peaked, we recently received a schedule of the documentary's screenings and upcoming events … "Below are the 2nd and third local screenings of the documentary. I am working on securing screenings through other food allergy support groups in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, which will happen between January-May 2009." …

Re: Detroit PBS
They will be showing a one-hour version of the documentary in late January/early February 2009, which will probably be on a weekend. I do not yet have a specific day/time.
Re: National PBS
NETA, which has distributed several of my previous to PBS, is interested in the 60 minute version as well, which they will offer to stations in February/March (via satellite) so they can air it during “Food Allergy Awareness week” in May. It is over half a year away but it makes the most sense to have it showing around this time as more stations will pick it up and more people will tune into the program.
The DVD (84 minutes) is now available directly on my website and will soon available through Amazon.com in several weeks. The Library Video Company will also feature it in their catalog, for sale to libraries across the country.
