Fixing the Future – Nationwide movie event on July 18, coming to Charlottesville!

Fixing the Future – see the trailer here!

Cville TimeBank is hosting a local screening of the film, Fixing the Future, coming to theaters across the US for a special one-night screening event.  We hope you’ll make plans to attend!  Join us on July 18 at 7:30 at the Carmike Cinema, 1005 Gardens Blvd in Charlottesville (behind Pier1 Imports on 29North) for this special screening.

Cville TimeBank is one of more than 50 groups around the country participating in the campaign, using Fixing the Future to encourage American communities to create resilient, local economies through innovative approaches to job creation. Fixing the Future Across America also links together a national network of business groups and community-based organizations working to improve their local economies.  Timebanking is just ONE of the approaches highlighted in the film – and it’s sure to inspire you to get involved.  There’s also a special broadcast panel discussion after the movie, featuring:

  • Bill McKibben: Author, environmentalist, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College
  • Majora Carter: Peabody Award winning broadcaster & Urban Revitalization Strategist
  • Mike Brady: CEO, Greyston Bakery & social entrepreneur
  • David Brancaccio: Host, NOW on PBS

Our co-sponsors for this screening are Transition Charlottesville and Better World Betty – thanks for helping us spread the word about this exciting event!  Download a flyer here.

Advance tickets can be purchased through Fandango here.

Immediately after the film, stroll with us over to Kirt’s Homemade Ice Cream in Albemarle Square for an Ice Cream Social, where we’ll continue the conversation and networking about local initiatives akin to those mentioned in the film.  Get connected… get involved… and getcha some ice cream!

We set up an RSVP event page that’s easy to share with your contact lists, and will help us give Kirt a head count for the ice cream social.  RSVP here – and we hope to see you on July 18!
