On July 18, Fixing the Future will screen in theaters in over 50 U.S. cities to engage communities interested in strengthening efforts to build a resilient local economy and
create new jobs around the country. This one-night-only national event will include an exclusive on-screen panel discussion featuring luminaries Bill McKibben, Majora Carter,
Mike Brady and David Brancaccio.
We invite you to join us for a free pre-reception before viewing the movie to mingle, discuss and nibble. No host bar available.
If you saw the shorter PBS documentary a few years back, rest assured, this feature film is more in depth, focuses on some newer themes, but still features Bellingham! We filled the room last time we hosted a screening and we anticipate a full house this time too, so come early!
In the film, host David Brancaccio (of NOW on PBS) visits locations 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 an economic collapse. The film highlights community banking, time banking/exchange, worker cooperatives and local currencies.The screening will be followed by an exclusive filmed discussion panel including Bill McKibben, Majora Carter and David Brancaccio.
