We're very happy to announce that "Revenge of the Electric Car" will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2011 in New York City! We heard the news while getting started with our sound mixing and color correction, which we will wrap up just in time to deliver the film straight from the editing room to the festival.
Tribeca announced that “Revenge of the Electric Car" will make its grand debut during the opening weekend as its Spotlight feature documentary. We’re especially excited to be premiering at such a prestigious festival. “For many people, this is year 1 of the electric car,” said director Chris Paine. "For us to be playing at Tribeca in New York on Earth Day is a great sign that the electric car revolution is more than just a great story, it's our future with less imported oil."
"Revenge of the Electric Car" tells the story of how the plug-in car has come back from the dead in a few short years. With gas prices rising around the world again in monetary and environmental terms, many drivers want alternatives. “Revenge of the Electric Car” went behind the scenes for 3 years with 3 carmakers and 1 converter as they race to bring their electric cars to market.
After the Earth Day premiere, the film will have a handful of other screenings at the Tribeca Film Festival. Tickets to those screenings will go on sale at the festival’s website here. Stay tuned for more details on the festivities surrounding the premiere- it’s going to be a great event!
BTW, Thank you for overflowing our email box with messages about when the film will be showing near you! So far the only answer we can give is “as soon as we can!” After our premiere at Tribeca, we’ll be mapping out our release strategy to bring the film to the cities with the most requests for it first. If you haven't already please request the film here and pass it along.
The future is electric!
