Fixing the Future Across America:
A National Campaign
We’ve just finished premiering Fixing the Future in 60 communities across America and the response was overwhelming. Theaters were sold out in large cities such as New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and in smaller towns from St. Petersburg, FL, to Bainbridge Island, WA. The event brought people together with local organizations and they are starting to take action for the betterment of their communities.
Following this initial success we are now working with new towns and cities across the country to bring Fixing the Future to other communities. If your group or organization is interested in hosting a screening, learn more here.
Read what people had to say about Fixing the Future after they attended the event. Here’s a sample from our Facebook page: “Loved the film – very inspiring, and our ice cream social afterward was a fantastic networking opportunity!” — Kathy Kildea from Charlottesville, Virginia
About the Film
In Fixing the Future, host David Brancaccio, of public radio’s Marketplace and NOW on PBS, visits people and organizations across America that are attempting a revolution: the reinvention of the American economy. By featuring communities using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity, Fixing the Future inspires hope and renewal in a people overwhelmed by economic collapse.
The film highlights effective, local practices such as: local business alliances, community banking, time banking/hour exchange, worker cooperatives and local currencies.
Following the national premiere of the documentary on July 18, 2012, audiences enjoyed an exclusive onscreen discussion panel featuring luminaries Bill McKibben, Majora Carter, Mike Brady and David Brancaccio.
