TINY Premieres on Al Jazeera America Presents this Sunday 11/24

TINY: A Story About Living Small will have its US cable television premiere THIS SUNDAY at 9E/6P on Al Jazeera America.

It has been a wild 2 1/2 years. From when we first took the leap and decided to commit to building our Tiny House all the way through the film festival circuit, we have had such wonderful support from the Tiny House community and all of those who are inspired by simple living around the world. All of the support we have received while making the film drives us to get it out there as soon as possible. And while we have been happy to share it with those people who happen to live in communities around the world where it has screened in festivals, we have been dying to make TINY available for everyone to see and hopefully be inspired by. So when we say that we are thrilled to be able to present TINY on Sunday to US audiences, you can trust that we mean it.

Two things to note: 1) Al Jazeera America is a relatively new 24hr news channel similar to CNN. It is available on most satellite and cable television netowrks but you will have to check your local provider to find out for sure. 2) For the television version only, TINY has been shortened a bit so that it can fit in an one hour time slot. The official version is actually about 10 minutes longer.

Now, we know a lot of people don’t have cable television or do not get Al Jazeera America. For you we hope to be able to make TINY available online for you stream or download sometime in the near future. Also, DVDs are still coming and will be available soon. Hang in there!

For Canadians: TINY premiered on the CBC Documentary channel last weekend, but check with them as they plan on airing repeats of TINY through out the next year. It will also be available in Canada on iTunes and other digital platforms very soon!

    Will Aj Jazeera re-air it? I check your site often for update but apparently missed this by one day as it aired last night and I am only seeing this post on 11/25. If you know, please post it.

    • Hi Andrew, we do know that the station plans to re-air the film, though we do not know (or have any control over) when exactly that is. I’d suggest checking out their website here for more info: http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/al-jazeera-america-presents.html . If we hear anything about their plans to air the film in the future, we will definitely let you know! The film will also be available for online download and streaming in the coming months. Thank you for your interest and we are sorry that you missed it last night!

I did watch your interview about the film on YouTube. Could you please let me know when the film will be available for purchase online and can you contact me when it is available? Thanks and fantastic job on your project!
