To all those dads we’ve loved and lost… to all those still trying to check their fantasy teams while their kids tug at their pants… and to those still dreaming of the day they hold their newborn in their arms… from all of us here at Getting Over, we wish you a Happy Father’s Day!!!
Getting Over is now available on Amazon Prime Video UK! Great Britain, here’s your chance to see the darling of the SXSW Film Festival 2018! “A man discovers a box of interviews with his father, a life-long heroin addict who died of AIDS in 1997. What he finds will uncover generations of family secrets, forcing him to redefine his own past, doubt his present, and question his future.” Buy or rent the film on Amazon Prime Video UK now, or watch FREE with Prime! http://bit.ly/GettingOverAmazonPrimeUK
Tuesday is #Reviewsday here at Getting Over! Not a day has gone by that we haven’t heard from someone who’s been positively affected by the film. Stay tuned for further details for an upcoming Facebook Live #Reviewsday next week where Director/Producer Jason Charnick will be reading some more viewer mail, and talking about the film and the current state of its release, including now being available to UK audiences on Amazon Prime Video!
The comments continue to pour in, this time from a judge in California who thinks we should be required viewing for all judges! Well, even if that’s not about to happen, we hope judges across the land can find the wisdom to view addicts before them as humans deserving of dignity, so that they can be appropriately handled as some make their unfortunate way through the criminal justice system.
Our production company, Upstart Film Collective, has just launched on Facebook! Check it out and watch some of our older films, now exclusive to Amazon Prime Video!

Welp, our NYC screening did not reach its goal, and as such, the event has been… well, let’s just call it rescheduled. If you purchased a ticket through Tugg, you will be refunded in full, and you should have already received a digital download link as a thank you for your support. Why “rescheduled?” Because we will still be having more public screenings on the east coast, starting with Asbury Park, NJ on April 26 & 27. These screenings are confirmed! Stay tuned for more details on how you can still see Getting Over on the big screen!
