We’re extremely proud that most of our screenings are organized and led by members of our community (and people who’ve supported the movie)!

(A detailed write-up of our first few premieres is right over here.)
July 7, 2012 | Portland, Oregon | Mission Theater and Pub
The world premiere of “I’m Fine, Thanks” took place during an amazing annual event called the World Domination Summit. The crew was in town, along with several of the fascinating people interviewed for the movie. It was a magical night.
July 12, 2012 | New York, New York | Tribeca Cinemas
The East Coast premiere was held at the legendary Tribeca Cinemas (home of the Tribeca Film Festival). We packed both theaters – and celebrated before and after in downtown Manhattan!
July 13, 2012 | Los Angeles, California | Dim Mak Studios
The morning after NYC (only a few hours later), we flew cross-country to make our West Coast premiere in Hollywood (where else?). Many industry professionals and movie buffs made joined with our earliest supporters to create yet another great night.
Aug. 10, 2012 | Wilmington, Ohio | Murphy Theatre
Wilmington, Ohio was a special location for our Midwest premiere – as it was the hometown of documentary crew members Grant Peelle, John Cropper and Bryan Olinger. The beautiful, elegant Murphy Theater hosted the largest turnout of any premiere to date!
Aug. 18, 2012 | Ottawa, Ontario, Canada | Ottawa International Film Festival
Many thanks to ANASTASIA VALENTINE, one of the movies earliest and staunest supporter, for her hard work organizing this screening/festival! Grant (director) was on hand to meet participants and answer questions.
Aug. 18 and 20, 2012 | Seattle and Bellevue, Washington
A huge shoutout to CARRIE LOUISE DAENELL, yet another early and passionate supporter, for organizing these screenings as part of the Naturopathic Medical Student Association and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians conferences.
Aug. 19, 2012 | Reykjavik, Iceland | Bio Paradis
Our “top of the world” premiere was organized by ANASTASIA VALENTINE and HEATHER THORKELSON. Anastasia said, “In Reykjavik we had a PACKED HOUSE, people were sitting on steps and bringing in chairs… With a country of only 300,000 people, there was some serious interest, passion and commitment to take action!”
Sept. 12, 2012 | San Luis Obispo, California | The Palm Theatre
Many thanks to BOB BANNER for organizing this screening for about 70 people at The Palm, a solar-powered theater! Bob said, “Most people came because they weren’t living their dreams. About 20% were living their dreams so I asked them to speak up about how truthful the film’s stories were, etc.”
Oct. 7, 2012 | Augusta, Georgia | Imperial Theater, Westobou Film Festival
The largest supporter of our amazing Kickstarter premiere was the inspiring team behind the Westobou Festival in Augusta, Georgia. A huge thanks to MOLLY McDOWELL and the Westobou organizers for allowing us to close out the festival on its final night. Grant, Baker and John were all able to attend!
Oct. 11, 2012 | Overland Park, Kansas | Kansas International Film Festival
We appreciate STACY RICH and the KIFF team, who were amazing and featured us on the final night of their festival! Although the crew was unable to make this stop, we were amazed at the response we got from those in attendance.
Oct. 17, 2012 | Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Many thanks to DEAN ANGELLETA for organizing this screening – sending the proceeds he made from the sale BACK to the team for more marketing efforts. Dean said he expected about 100 people to show up, and 300 appeared instead, with a line out the door!
Nov. 5, 2012 | London, United Kingdom | Roxy Bar and Screen
TAMARISK SAUNDERS-DAVIES and STEVE ERREY did a fantastic job of organizing our first showing in London! Baker was able to join a packed theater after the viewing via Skype to answer questions and chat with the audience. Technology is awesome!
