NYC and LA Premieres!!!!

On February 29th, Burning the Future: Coal in America will premiere at the Landmark Sunshine Theater in NYC for a one-week run! We will have Q & A sessions after the early evening showings on Friday and Saturday, and after matinees on Sunday. During the following week, we will provide Q&A sessions after any screening which a local high school or middle school attends.

I am very excited about this new and rapid development. Please look for reviews in the papers and spread the word!

Tickets will be available on the Landmark Theater website, or...


On March 7th, BTF will have its West Coast premiere, also for a one-week run! Exact theater and times to be determined. I will update as soon as possible.

If the film is about West Virginia, why not have the premiere in West Virginia???

Thank you for your comment, and I agree. I had hoped to make the premiere there in West Virginai.

However, I had to make a last minute decision to run the film in NY and LA in order to qualify for certain Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science rules. My hope is that the exposure from this run will help the film reach a wider audience faster.

To be sure, the film will have a special West Virginia premiere in the months to come. I am working on that now. If you would like to help, please let me know.

I am taking my family to see this. While the setting may be West Virginia, the subject is global.

I just made a post about the openings at the Eco Art Blog. Good luck with the New York premiere.

"If you would like to help, please let me know." That's perfect! Congrats on a great effort and may it help wake more people up. Good treatment of civil disobedience, to inspire others, not the heavy handed nature of the police as is often sensationalized, real as it is. Saw other films that included the Earth First! activists blocking the trucks. Your treatment was well done too. It is not only for radicals, but for civic minded people too, of all ages, even 70+ and in a wheelchair it seemed that one woman! Beautiful nature shots and you got to end to with a bit of artistry too.
