from an email I received from Eduardo Verastegui about Bella:
“I am so overwhelmed with joy by the support we have received all year, and most of all this week. Finding investors to finance “Bella” was the first miracle, the film completed was the second. The third and biggest miracle was when “Bella” Won the Toronto Film Festival, but the most touching of all has been traveling the country and meeting all of you, and your support this week
has been inspirational.
We have hundreds of theatres pre sold and many supporters are buying a 100 tickets for family, and others 10,000 to bless a whole city, anything to adopt these theatres, all in support of our film and its message.
I want you to know how grateful I am, and I hope when it comes out in theatres this Friday, you can sit in that chair, watch it on the big screen and know you were part of a miracle in action. It is a beautiful film that to me
was created by something bigger then us all, and I will never forget all of the passion, support and life this film has inspired.
If you can walk with me just a few more weeks and help us get the word out so this film can get it’s place in time and into the hearts and minds of as many people possible.
I have pasted below ways in which you can help, most of all by adopting a theatre or asking others to co-adopt a theatre.
Every email you send, blog you post, call you make, has a tremendous impact. As we all work together amazing things are happening.
p.s. I am amazed by the unending genorocity of the people we have met through Bella. A young girl who can not afford her own rent, took all of her savings to adopt a theatre.
p.s. Our group sales Director says she has never seen anything like this.
This is a testament to you.
WAYS TO HELP BELLA

Film “Bella” in theatres this week - October 26
The story behind the making of the new movie, “Bella” is unbelievable!!!
...I know many of them and they deserve our support for making a movie that
transforming peoples lives. A group of first time filmmakers took a huge
faith to tell this beautiful story and miraculously won People’s Choice

past recipients including best picture winners & nominees “Chariots of

By forwarding this email to your entire list, we show our support for quality films that celebrate the best of the human spirit and inspire people to live for others and to build a better world.
At the same time we will encourage filmmakers to create more beautiful films like it.
We need to support our friends who are working hard for us in Hollywood because if we don’t the market will continue to be flooded with films that don’t have the beauty that “Bella” has.
If the film has a big opening weekend it will go into even more theatres next week and touch more lives so please try to turn out this week on opening weekend, Oct 26th.
I think the below email from my friend says it all.
Please pass this email on to everyone you know!
