FRED the Documentary Launches New Web Site
 
HOLLYWOOD, CA – Today we are proud to announce the launch of our slick new web site, www.FREDtheFilm.com  It’s the go to site for the new documentary on Fred Karger’s historic campaign for President. 
 
The site let’s you read about the film, view the trailer, see the coverage, take a look at photos and meet the players in John Fitzgerald Keitel’s groundbreaking film.
 
FRED has already received a tremendous reaction from screening audiences and great early reviews (see below).

FRED toured New Hampshire in March, where much of the campaign and the documentary filming took place.  FRED served as the opening night film at the MONIFF International Film Festival and then screened all over the Granite State.
 
There were also rough cut screenings held in Los Angeles, Laguna Beach, New York and Salt Lake City last winter.
 
FRED becomes the third documentary on the 2012 Presidential Campaign.  It joins MITT by Greg Whiteley, on Mitt Romney’s effort and Caucus by AJ Schnack which tells the story of the 2011-2012 GOP campaign in Iowa.
 
FRED PREMIERE COMING SOON!

We will be announcing the Hollywood Premiere of Fred very soon. It will be held in Hollywood later this month.

FRED Synopsis

2014, USA, 102 minutes
Director: John Fitzgerald Keitel

When Fred Karger began running for President of the United States in February 2010 filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel was at his side. John spent the next two years documenting his historic campaign as the first openly gay candidate for president from either major political party. Now a one hour documentary, FRED is out and gives audiences an real inside look at the roller coaster campaign. Follow Fred from the towns of New Hampshire to the Iowa State Fair.  Watch as he takes on Fox News and Mitt Romney. See the reaction from voters to any openly gay GOP candidate as the campaign travels from New Orleans to New York, from Gay Pride Parades to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Watch Fred as he fights for inclusion in the debates, takes on his opponents and campaigns to let lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans know that anything is possible. It’s an hour of history that will make you laugh, cry and guaranteed to delight all audiences.
