We are happy to announce that the worldwide premiere of our animated film, “The War To End All Wars – The Movie”, is taking place in the two weeks surrounding November 11, 2023, in museums around the world.
We have selected this date based on its historical importance; November 11 was the day that World War 1 came to an end, and is known as Armistice Day.
We wanted to ensure we launched this movie in the most meaningful way possible, and that is why we have initiated a worldwide museum project entitled “History Rocks” to do this. “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” is at the centre of this project, which is a charity initiative developed to emphasise the importance of history education and encourage more people to visit their local museums.
We are reaching out to museums both big and small to be part of this world premiere of “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” at no cost. The only requirement is that they must be equipped with the appropriate facilities and audio-visual equipment to host the screening.
You can find out where “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” is being shown by taking a look at our list of participating museums on our website. If you can’t find a location near you, please suggest your local museum to us by filling in the “Suggest a museum!” form, and we will contact them. Get them in on this very unique initiative and let’s spread our love for history!
“We are excited to launch this project! We believe that by screening “The War To End All Wars – The Movie” in museums around the world, we can inspire people to appreciate the importance of preserving and learning about our history. And what better way is there to do this than by infusing history education with an entertaining, adrenaline-fuelled animated movie? It’s also a fantastic way to persuade a brand new audience to visit their local museums. Museums are really important to us as a band, especially military and history-focused museums – we have learned so much from them. We want the world to be curious and would love for people to genuinely want to learn about the past. The only way we grow as human beings is by learning about days gone by and appreciating the sacrifices that have been made for us to live the way we do.”Pär Sundström
