Before the tragic sudden death of John Hughes this past summer four filmmakers from Toronto — Michael Facciolo (producer) , Kari Hollend (producer), Lenny Panzer (co-creator) and Matt Austin Sadowski (director) — spent four years making a tribute documentary about the reclusive director, nabbing interviews with some of the main actors from his films (Andrew McCarthy, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson to name a few), directors who have been influenced by his iconic work (Kevin Smith and Jason Reitman) and traveling to Illinois last year to find Hughes.

After Hughes’s death the project suddenly became a hot commodity and got a worldwide deal with Alliance Films which released the film, Don’t You Forget About Me, on DVD today. Learn more about the film here. It’s available at Best Buy, Walmart, iTunes, Blockbuster and other stores.

Seeing the trailer below, it looks like it’s a must see for any Hughes fan.
