Is there any way of getting a DVD or a Bluray of this? Any information is welcome.

You can order a DVD or Blu-ray from the film's website.

I ordered the DVD and according to an e-mail I got recently, the DVD should become available mid March.

Jurg, the only place right now (we are working on other platforms) is via our website as skyguard23 points out. The DVDs are completed, but we are just awaiting the packaging to be finalized. This should be next week.

Blu-rays are available (my personal bias but the film looks the best in HD as it was mastered in 2K).

UPDATE: As I was writing this we received word that Searching for Skylab achieved the level of "Silver Selection" at the World London Film Festival!

It is with much excitement that we read the announcement that Searching for Skylab had won the Award of "Best Editing/Archival Usage & Assembly In A Documentary." It is an honour to have the work of all those who made Skylab a reality be recognized in such a prestigious manner as this.

And so it is again that Searching for Skylab has won over the judges in another film festival. The Hollywood Hills Film Awards has announced the winner of the Best Documentary category is "Searching for Skylab: America's Forgotten Triumph"!

If you are starting to wonder what all the fuss is about, all I can say is "What took you so long, so why not head over to the film's website and see for yourself?"

And so it is again that Searching for Skylab, has won it's 10th award. This time the German United Film Festival has awarded the film the title of Best Documentary.

The Germans are a tough nut to crack, but not tough enough.

Who'da thought a film about umbrellas and showers in space could win over so many judges the world over, because heaven knows no one else will join in here singing the praises of a multi award winning film...

It is good to be the king.

Congratulations! I have watched the documentary multiple times, and include it in my research on Skylab.

I always remember something a wise person once told me, and that is "pay close attention to the quiet people because they are the ones who have the treasure."

Just because we have been relatively quiet on the home front, doesn't mean we have been sleeping. "Searching for Skylab" continues to fill the hole in public consciousness about the largely forgotten program. I dare to say it ain't so forgotten anymore.

Last week we picked up the award for Best International Documentary at the Culver City Film Festival. It is an absolute honor to win this in the heart of the film and TV studios in Los Angeles.

Prior to that we also won an impressed nine consecutive awards at the Future of Film Awards September, 2021 Best Director Feature Film, Best First Time Director (Feature), Best Cinematography, Best Production, Best Editing, Best Sound Design, Best Trailer, Best Poster.

Perhaps now was maybe a good time to get a little bit louder.

Congratulations!

Is the DVD in PAL or NTSC format when delivered to the USA?

Skylab is not forgotten by me, and this film does a great job in reminding the more forgetful of what they should never have forgotten!

Same here, Skylab has always been my favourite program and this film deserves all the recognition it's receiving.

Congratulations indeed.

I would like to take this moment to thank everyone here for their support for 2021. It has been an extremely successful year for us right up until the last day of 2021.

Today we received word that we won the Award for Best Documentary at the Shiny Sparkle Independant Online Film Festival. What a way to end the year!

Having watched the DVD last night, I was very happy with the movie, and the service by Dwight in getting me the DVD was great, thank you.
