Paramount to ship free ‘Selma’ DVD to every high school in US

Paramount Home Media announced today they’ll be shipping a free DVD copy of the Oscar-winning film Selma to every high school in the United States. This includes both public and private schools, with the capacity to reach approximately 18 million high school students. While Selma is already available in Digital HD format, the DVD and Blu-ray will release on May 5th.

Over 300,000 young people were able to see Selma for free during the film’s theatrical run that started on January 9th this year.

Selma tells the story of how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. helped organize and lead the historical march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to help secure the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

“Our ‘SELMA’ filmmaking journey has had many highlights, but to me, the response from students and educators has been the most magnificent part of the experience,” said Selma director Ava DuVernay.

“The response from students and teachers to our ‘Selma for Students’ initiative was overwhelmingly positive and we are delighted to be extending the campaign,” said Megan Colligan, president, Worldwide Distribution and Marketing, Paramount Pictures.

Teachers can also receive a copy of the Selma companion study guide, by visiting the Web site BazanED.com.
