22nd November. This page is under construction, sorry for all the mess. The screening information is correct.
In one of the most exposed and important countries in the issue of climate change, Americans showed impassioned support for the film at the Global Premiere on September 21st, 2009, in the lead-up and in the many subsequent screenings since then. Americans obviously have a big role to play and it is encouraging to see so much interest in and support for the film from audiences and press including The New York Times, Huffington Post and others.
What happened in NYC? On September 21st we broadcast the film live to 440 cinemas across the US to almost every god given state. Moby, Kofi Annan and Mary Robinson attended and Radiohead's Thom Yorke played a song while Heather Graham and model Shalom Harlow walked the green carpet. This was linked by satellite to over 440 US cinemas and 63+ countries. NGOs - MoveOn, Greenpeace, TckTckTck and 30 others around the world helped us to promote the event through social networking. We reached over 1 million people from Kazakhstan to Kiribati and helped to open the UN Week on Climate Change in New York.
The Huffington Post today
"One of the most important films of the year (perhaps decade)..... The Age of Stupid represents the future of film, film culture and film distribution and marketing. Filmmakers need to realize that getting your film in front of an audience is at least half of their job as filmmakers. The filmmakers behind The Age of Stupid get it. They get it to the nth degree and it is exciting. They are blazing a trail for filmmakers to not only release their films in their home countries, but around the world. We are on the verge of a new dawn, where fans support the films they want to see and where those films can create a worldwide theatrical release without studio support. You should go see this film not because I feel it is a great film (I haven't seen it yet!) but because you will be participating in the rebirth of film culture." (Jon Reiss)
On September 21st / 22nd, on the eve of the UN General Assembly's climate session, The Age of Stupid was launched internationally at the biggest and greenest live film event the world has ever seen. A-list celebrities walked the green carpet to an eco cinema tent in downtown New York, linked by satellite to 700 cinemas in 50+ countries. Take a look at the photos below from the events around the world and see the Global Premiere page for the full report.
