I'm Not Ashamed (2016) Poster


According to Wikipedia, Rachel Joy Scott's funeral was viewed by more viewers than any event in CNN history, including more viewers than Princess Diana's funeral.
Rachel's actual red Acura was transported all the way from Littleton, Colorado to Nashville, TN for the filming of this movie.
The release date was pushed back from April 20th, 2016 to October 21st, 2016 as requested by Rachel's parents. The initial release date was on the 17th anniversary of her death- April 20, 1999. The release date being pushed back to October seemed more appropriate, as the movie is meant to be a celebration of her life rather than her death.
The executive producer, Benny Proffitt, was leading a Tour Across America to every state with 40 college students and arrived at Columbine just hours after the massacre for a scheduled school program.
Rachel predicted at 9 years old that someday she would "touch millions of people's hearts".
Early drafts of the film contained a scene in which shooter Dylan Klebold implied he was gay in a private conversation with Eric Harris about Rachel's reveal of her faith, lamenting, "Know where I would be if I tried to 'be real' with everyone about 'who I am'? Tied to a fence about 120 miles north of here with my brains bashed in!", a reference to the murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. This was a throwaway line and was ultimately removed following a June 2016 mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
