LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 11, 2013) - Today Vision Films, a worldwide distributor of independent feature films, documentaries and music programming, announces the first theatrical screening of "Femme: Women Healing the World," a globally conscious documentary directed by Emmanuel Itier that features Sharon Stone, Maria Bello, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Gloria Steinem, Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Shirin Ebadi, Mairead Maguire and Jody Williams, and many other notable women from around the world.

The screening begins at 7:30 pm tonight, to a sold-out audience at Laemmle's Monica 4 in Santa Monica, and concludes with a Q&A session with Director Emmanuel Itier, Director of Photography Claude Budin-Juteau and several of the women interviewed in the film, including Marianne Williamson, Celeste Yarnall, Carole Wells, Ingrid Hirstin Lazcano, Helene Cardona, and Gemini Adams. Additionally, attending cast and crew will be available for press interviews and audience feedback.

"This is one of many events to come," comments Vision Films Managing Director and CEO of Worldwide Distribution, Lise Romanoff. "The next event at AMC Loews Orpheum 7 in Manhattan on October 9th is expected to be a packed house as well."

"Femme: Women Healing the World" is the first of Vision Films' crowd-driven theatricals, which will be followed by "Beauty and the Breast," a documentary with a cause for breast cancer awareness. These screenings are requested through links on each film's website, hosted by an individual person or organization, and are available in every theatrical market in the United States. In addition to innovative theatricals, the films are available on direct to the consumer through a streaming player embedded on websites, which is available worldwide. Nearly any person or organization can become a revenue-sharing affiliate by embedding the film on their web pages -- including but not limited to fan/genre sites, official websites of celebrity actors in the films, Facebook pages and more.

"We invite our fans to visit our website to partner with us to host screening events and become affiliates to stream Femme on their websites," says Emmanuel Itier, director of "Femme: Women Healing the World." "A film like this demands support from people in local communities. We have a great message to spread and the only way we can do so is with your help!"

"Femme: Women Healing the World" on DVD hits U.S. retailers March 1st, 2014. A special curriculum version DVD of the film will be made available for educators to allow for sharing with students.
