About the design:
"Powerful art can heal, bring awareness and create change" - Zack Snyder
Inspired by these words DC Film Fans created a series of t-shirt campaigns leveraging artistic talent within our fanbase in order to raise awareness & funds for Suicide Prevention.
At San Diego ComicCon (SDCC) 2018 a group of fans self-funded and freely distributed t-shirts to event attendees in solidarity with visionary film director Zack Snyder. Believing we could celebrate and leverage art within our fandom to help drive awareness and positive change, the I❤ZS ComicCon design became the first of our charity fundraiser t-shirts for The American Foundation For Suicide Prevention. That fundraiser inspired several follow up campaigns which have raised tens of thousands of dollars for Suicide Awareness.
Our mission continues...
At this year's ComicCon the grassroots #ReleaseTheSnyderCut fan movement is organizing to have a presence at the event and in doing so will continue our mission to raise awareness and funds to help give hope to folks struggling with mental health and provide support for families affected by suicide.
Attendees at the event this year will be wearing our new ReleaseTheSnyderCut design, created by fan designer Ramesh De Silva. This design boldly proclaims the movement's goal of achieving the release of Zack Snyder's Directors Cut of Justice League through positive advocacy, promotion and engagement.
In honour of actor Ray Porter, the design incorporates a hint of a key character element that was missing from the theatrical release of the film. This aspect of the design serves as a broader symbol for all of the artists and professionals who's hard work on the original film we fight to vindicate.
Fans can now order the SDCC shirt to show support for the RTSC movement at ComicCon, help raise much needed funds for the important cause of Suicide Prevention - which is close to so many of our hearts - and express solidarity with all of the creatives who put their blood, sweat and tears into the Justice League project.
For Powerful Art.
Heal. Bring Awareness. Create Change.
