An Emmy-winning journalist will host a special Q&A session following the screening of Plant Based News' new documentary later this month in Los Angeles.
The film, Vegan 2019, will premiere at a private screening at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills on Saturday, November 30.
After watching the documentary, animal advocate and journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell will host a panel discussing the progress of the vegan movement.
Velez-Mitchell, an author and television and social media journalist, is the founder of vegan digital news network #JaneUnChained.
In addition, she recently directed a documentary called Countdown to Year Zero, which she says 'looks at how the enormous role of animal agriculture in climate change is being mostly ignored to our peril and how we can create a vegan world by 2026'.
PBN's new documentary, Vegan 2019, looks at the phenomenal growth of veganism over the last 12 months. Director Klaus Mitchell examines some of the most significant vegan moments from the year.
Mitchell said he is delighted that the film will premiere in multiple locations for the first time ever this year, saying it's fantastic that PBN can 'offer more people the full experience of watching the film on the big screen via private screenings'.
He added: "By showing up and getting a ticket, you are supporting Plant Based News, so it can make more documentaries and content like this. The Q&A sessions after the film will be a lot of fun. In Los Angeles, the special guests include Jane Velez-Mitchell and Talita Trygsaland - with further speakers to be announced."
