Their Self-Inflicted 30 Day Film Festival debuted theatrically at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in April 2004.

The Late Train Productions released its "Year One Collection," a DVD including all of the content created during the first year of production, in March 2004, and its "30 Day Film Festival" DVD in July 2004.
