Detroit Firefighting Documentary BURN to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

The producers of the documentary “”Burn: One Year on the Front Lines of the Battle to Save Detroit” have announced that the film will premiere in April at the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan. The high-profile festival will run from April 18-29.

BURN is a documentary about Detroit, told through the eyes of front-line Detroit firefighters. These members have been charged with the thankless task of saving a city–and an American Dream–that many have written off as dead.

A significant portion of proceeds from the film is slated to go to the Leary Firefighters Foundation to purchase much-needed gear for the Detroit firefighters. Producers are still trying to secure distribution for the film.

Producers and Detroit firefighters talked about the film in the December 2011 Tailboard Talk program on Fire Engineering Talk Radio. Find out more and listen to the archived program HERE.
