Good friend Lis Fies is putting out the word on how you can see her movie THE COMMUNE on Netflix. 
Do YOURSELF the favor, and add it to your Netflix Queue.

IF YOU DO - and comment on this post that you have done so - you will put your name in the hat to win a free DVD of the movie.  Signed and personalized by Lis. 


Details below. Get to it.
Hi filmmakers/filmlovers,

All you folks who have a Netflix account can do me a huge favor just by adding our movie, The Commune to your Netflix Queue. (If you don't have an account, you can pass this email on to your friends!)

As you may know, I recently completed my first feature film as
director/writer/producer, The Commune.

We received a warm welcome with great reviews 
and festival showings but we are now in the grinding process of self-distribution.  
We have been selling DVDs on our website along with digital downloads through
but this is a slow and piecemeal process.

We received some good news recently that Netflix will accept our movie
with one caveat:  we have to prove that we have an audience that wants
to see this before they will order any DVDs from us.  So, we need 130
people to save the DVD in their Queue and then they will accept us.
So far we have 90 people who have saved the DVD, so we just need 40

Please follow this link:

Click the Add to DVD Queue button and that's it!  You don't even need
to watch the DVD (unless you want to), just by saving it to your Queue
you've demonstrated enough interest to Netflix, you'll be supporting
independent film, and you'll be doing a huge favor for me.

Thanks so much for you support!

(P.S. please feel free to forward this message to anyone else you know
who has a Netflix account)

EARNING BONUS POINTS If you've got 40 more seconds to help, please
1. rate our film
2. Mark the reviews as helpful

SUPER DUPER BONUS POINTS If you've seen the movie and want to dash 
out a few sentences of review, that is a HUGE help to us!!!

All appreciation,

Elisabeth Fies, director/writer/producer
The Commune: A New Cult Classic

Remember - Add the movie to your Queue and then comment to add your name to win your very own  DVD  with all sorts of neat little extras on it.

Done. She only needs 39 others now.

Looks like The Commune is getting really good viewer reviews on Netflix, too.
