Tony Robbins Documentary To Open 2016 American Documentary Film Festival;  Famed Life Coach, Best-Selling Author, and Philanthropist, Tony Robbins, and Academy Award®-nominated Filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, to Attend Opening Night Screening.

February 3, 2016, Palm Springs, CA – The American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs) announced today that TONY ROBBINS: I AM NOT YOUR GURU, the brand-new feature documentary about internationally-renowned life and business strategist Tony Robbins, will be the Opening Night feature for the festival’s Fifth Anniversary Edition.

Shot in classic cinéma vérité style, TONY ROBBINS: I AM NOT YOUR GURU goes behind the scenes of Robbins’ mammoth seminar, Date With Destiny, attended by over 2,500 people in Boca Raton, Florida, each year, to provide an inside look at how one man continues to impact the lives of millions. Granted unprecedented access to the behind-the-scenes operations of this enormous event, the filmmaker captured both the immense effort that goes into producing the live seminar, as well as the life-changing transformations of Date With Destiny participants, recorded in real time.

“We are honored to have both Joe Berlinger, the Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker, and the film’s subject, Famed Life Coach, Best-Selling Author, and Philanthropist, Tony Robbins, joining us for the screening and the Q&A afterwards.” said AmDocs Founder and Festival Director, Ted Grouya. 

To make this astonishing film, filmmaker Joe Berlinger embedded himself with Tony Robbins and his team over the course of six days. The resultant documentary, TONY ROBBINS: I AM NOT YOUR GURU, turns an unflinching eye on Tony Robbins‘ powerful and uncompromising approach to achieving success, as well as his commitment to seminar attendees that they will leave Date With Destiny with a new perspective on the forces, thoughts, and feelings that motivate their behavior, and with new tools that will help them take control of their lives.

The film also pulls the curtain back on Tony Robbins himself – the one man dynamo who traverses the globe and counsels over 200,000 people annually, including world leaders, pundits, entrepreneurs, CEOs, athletes and celebrities. TONY ROBBINS: I AM NOT YOUR GURU is a RadicalMedia and Third Eye Motion Picture Company Production.

Opening Night for the Fifth Anniversary of The American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs) begins at 5:30pm on Thursday, March 31st, at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs, with the Opening Night reception, and continues with the screening of TONY ROBBINS: I AM NOT YOUR GURU at 7pm.
