Genius Pictures

Genius Pictures is launching a special tour to promote “Love is All You Need” and the film’s anti-hate message.

Over 30 days, the film will travel across the United States for special screenings and events in 20 cities, as part of the tour called “The MovieMent.” Following the screenings, director Kim Rocco Shields and the other filmmakers will discuss its anti-hate themes.

Based on Shields’ award-winning short of the same name, the story takes place in a world where homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuality is taboo. Briana Evigan (“Step Up”), Tyler Blackburn (“Pretty Little Liars”), Emily Osment, and Jeremy Sisto star.

The cities were chosen based on fan requests, places where hate crimes were committed and locations that have a special connection to the pro-tolerance message of the film. Members of the filmmaking team, cast members, and special guests will appear at screenings.

“It’s time to celebrate our similarities instead of fighting about our differences; intolerance of any kind is unacceptable,” said writer and director Kim Rocco Shields. “I am very passionate about this film and The MovieMent, and I am thrilled to be continuing the dialogue that started three years ago, with the universal language of love”.

The film will release digitally on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016 via iTunes.

    This is not really a film about bullying. The real message of the film is the promotion of homosexuality, disguised as an anti-bullying film. If want to educate children about bullying, don’t use such a controversial subject. It sends the wrong message to young and impressionable viewers.
