The brain-child of filmmakers Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman, Fattitude is a feature length documentary film, featuring 49 amazing body positive voices, including activists, doctors, eating disorder specialists, psychologists, scholars, entertainers and media makers. Fattitude examines how popular media perpetuates the weight bias that results in a very real cultural hatred and a civil rights issue for people who are living in fat bodies.
A dynamic team, Averill and Lieberman possess the filmmaking, scholarly, writing, editing and production skills to relay the complex and intersectional reality of weight bias in Western Culture. You can watch the trailer for Fattitude here. Currently, there exists no film that truly examines this issue – an issue that affects not only fat people but also anyone dealing with body image issues.
Sponsoring a film is a little different than traditional event sponsorship - in that your name with not be associated with a one time event - rather your work will be connected to Fattitude with every click or view. For years to come every time someone watches Fattitude they will know that you or your company took part in this attempt to end weight bias and fat prejudice.
Even though post-production of Fattitude has not yet completed, the trailer that was used to successfully fund a kickstarter campaign was so thought provoking that discussion of Fattitude has been seen in media all over the world, including xojane, Jezebel, Curve, El Pais, UPWORTHY, Daily Mail, Huffington Post Live, Cosmopolitan, Bitch, Bustle, NPR, The Dr. Oz Show, Missy Magazine, News24, ABC.com, Huffington Post Women, and many others. Huffington Post named the Fattitude trailer as one of the “11 Things That Helped People Everywhere Love Their Bodies In 2014.”
Fattitude is poised for success - and with your help we can make that happen. #fattituderevolution
