September Tapes is a faux-documentary feature film co-written and directed by Christian Johnston in his feature debut. An early review of the film's promotional trailer noted that the footage looked "more real than network news footage".[1] It was rated R for "language and violent images" by the MPAA.

Distribution[edit]

The film was first presented at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2004, where First Look Media acquired worldwide distribution rights.[2] In May of the same year, it was featured at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film screened at many other film festivals, including: the Deauville American Film Festival, France; the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival, Denmark; the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival, Netherlands; and others.

The film is translated to "Septiembre Negro" ("Black September") for Spanish-language audiences.
