Tickets for the Los Angeles premiere of Plant Based News' upcoming documentary Vegan 2019 are selling in unexpected numbers.
This year is the first time the annual film will be shown in a cinema outside of London - the premiere was organized in response to overwhelming demand.
To accommodate the demand, PBN has released extra tickets for the screening, which will take place at the Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills on Saturday, November 30.
Vegan 2019 is the latest installment in PBN's series of annual films, which document the growth of the vegan movement over the previous 12 months.
This year, the significant moments from the year include awareness of the environmental impact of meat production due to catastrophes like the Amazon Rainforest fires, the growth of the plant-based meat industry, and the rise of plant-based athletes.
Vegan 2019 features leading names in the world of entertainment, sports, and animal advocacy, whose stories weave together to create a thrilling tapestry of this vibrant movement.
"We are delighted that, for the first time, the film will premiere in multiple locations," said PBN founder Klaus, who produced the film.
"Tickets have been selling in unexpected numbers since we announced the event, which has been exciting.
"It's fantastic that we are able to offer more people the full experience of watching the film on the big screen via private screenings. By showing up and getting a ticket, you are supporting Plant Based News, so it can make more documentaries and content like this."
Vegan 2019 is kindly sponsored by A Billion Veg - the revolutionary new platform where you can find reviews and recommendations for vegan-friendly food, restaurants and products near you.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session, featuring prolific vegan advocates, including Emmy-winning journalist Jane Velez Mitchell. Other special guests will soon be announced.
Proceeds from the screening will be used to cover the cost of the event and support the work of Plant Based News.
