Netflix Announces Public Screening Access for the Oscar-Nominated Documentary 13TH

Due to high demand from educational institutions across the country, Netflix is proud to enhance access to original documentaries that speak to members in a meaningful way

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 14, 2017) - Since Ava DuVernay's critically acclaimed documentary 13TH launched on Netflix, there has been a groundswell of interest from elementary schools to universities asking for permission to screen the film that explores the link between slavery and the modern-day prison system. Students and people of all ages will now have access to watch 13TH via the Netflix service in a public setting -- be it the classroom, a community group, book club or other educational forum.

13TH unveils the context and moral urgency behind today's most pressing public issues, from mass incarceration and the current state of race relations to immigration detention centers and private prisons. Immediately following the October 2016 launch on Netflix, leading advocacy organizations, such as ACLU, Center for Media Justice, cut50 and Google.org, hosted dozens of community screenings across the country to support their organizing efforts -- from Oakland, Des Moines and Columbus, OH; to Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

The educational screening permission is an extension of the community screening program to further meet viewer demand and ignite a cultural conversation around the modern-day issues 13TH so deftly encapsulates. For full terms, please visit the Netflix Media Center.

"We have been overwhelmed and inspired by the response to 13TH from people of all ages," said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary Programming. "Communities across the country are feeling the full weight of this particularly divisive moment in time. And, when some are capitalizing on this fear, we are especially inspired by the next generation, who are able to acknowledge the complex system they have inherited while simultaneously vowing to change it. Like DuVernay, they understand that we must come face to face with our past before we can fix our future."

Netflix original documentaries also part of the educational screening program include Oscar-nominated documentary shorts Extremis and The White Helmets; as well as The Ivory Game, Winter On Fire, Audrie and Daisy and Into the Inferno.
