The film generated a great deal of buzz prior to its premiere on April 20, 2012 at the Tribeca Film Festival. Texas Monthly reported that "[t]he film received rave reviews after its Tribeca premiere." The Revisionaries went on to win the Festival's Special Jury Prize. During the awards presentation, Michael Moore stated "I hope every American sees this film," and called The Revisionaries "a must-see film for anyone concerned about enforced ignorance and intolerance, and for those who still believe in science and in Thomas Jefferson."
