Hold Me is a film about opening up to other people in times of grief and supporting one another through difficult conversations. It was created by indie filmmakers, their friends & family, undiscovered working actors, dedicated local crew and a whole lot of volunteered time! The film is completely independent and has no corporate or studio backing. It depends entirely on donations from viewers to pay off the production costs of the film. All donations directly support the artists involved.
Your donation directly supports the artists involved and helps pave the way for our next socially conscious film.

We encourage using the film as a way to help discuss these themes.
Hold Me is 'pay what you want' to view, share and download. Anything you donate helps us tremendously and paves the way for our next film!

After accompanying a friend's father through his final hours, Hannah finds herself conflicted and uncertain. She can barely bring herself to do her job any longer and soon, her own mother is hospitalized. Desperate for money to pay for the medical bills, Hannah agrees to the unthinkable–to meet someone before she holds them–to get to know someone before she has to watch them die.
As her life spirals out of control, Hannah tries to keep herself together for the sake of those around her. But her judgment increasingly falters and her mother's health suddenly worsens. She can't escape the path she's chosen or the memories of all those she's ushered to death's door. With no other direction to turn, Hannah faces her pain and allows herself to grieve.
The panel discussion was featured alongside the premiere of the film Hold Me. Our aim is to help open hearts and minds to talking about the end of life and the significance of being a caregiver in that time. We would like to extend our thanks to the panelists, the audience and to caregivers everywhere.
