Don't You Forget About Me is a 2009 Canadian documentary film about screenwriter, director, and producer John Hughes. Directed by Matt Austin, and named after the 1985 hit song by Simple Minds. The film specifically focused on Hughes's fade from prominence in the early 1990s.
The documentary details the journey of a group of young filmmakers who go in search of the reclusive icon, documenting their search through interviews of the people with whom Hughes had worked and fans of his films. Those interviewed include Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Kelly LeBrock, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck, Kevin Smith, Roger Ebert, and Jim Kerr of the band Simple Minds. Filming began in 2006.
It was announced on August 11, 2009 that the film will be distributed by Alliance Films. The film aired on the Encore channel for a brief time as well.
