Plant Based News has launched the trailer for its first ever feature-length documentary.
Vegan 2018: The Year A Movement Went Mainstream paints a portrait of our changing society, showing a movement in its ascendency as more and more people start to move away from the ethical, environmental, and health horrors of animal exploitation.
Details about how - and where - you can watch the full film will be released in due course. Its predecessor Vegan 2017 has garnered more than 1,500,000 views on YouTube - and Plant Based News has been working on this year's film to make it bigger and better than ever before.
Over the year, Mitchell and Lockie have traveled across various continents to interview leading voices in the movement and film monumental events.
This footage - along with sourced clips - will tell the story of veganism throughout 2018. A number of celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Lewis Hamilton, Will. I. Am and Moby are seen in the documentary, along with footage shot on location at events like the London Animal Rights March.
An intriguing narrative unfolds as significant stories from the year are played out.

Plant Based News Founder Klaus Mitchell says: "If any of you last year saw our film Vegan 2017, that was a smaller project and a bit of a test run for this documentary which is feature-length and something I've wanted to do for years. I've got so much I could say about how it's looking, the team alongside me who's featured in it but I'm just going to keep this short and sweet.
"If you want to support this project, please consider joining our PBN Insiders platform. There you'll be able to get all the behind the scenes footage, bonus interview segments not shown in the film, vegan diet guides, cooking segments and much more.
"It costs the price of a sandwich to join and if enough people sign-up we'd be able to do some really cool things including premieres of the film around the world like we did with Dominion and it would also help with the production and other distribution costs so that collectively we can spread the word."
PBN Co-founder Robbie Lockie added: "It's incredible to see the vegan news every day, and observe how this movement is becoming more prominent in mainstream media and dialogue.
"We've seen a real pushback from animal agriculture over the last year, which reflects changing public perceptions around animal agriculture.
"Taking all of the stories from a year and assimilating them into one journey has been absolutely fascinating - and we hope our audience will also enjoy it."
