    Published on Mar 14, 2013 "This week, Cenk Uygur sits down with Peter Joseph, founder of the Zeitgeist movement. The Zeitgeist movement's goal is to create global sustainability by changing established social systems. Can people save the world by changing socially? Is the market economy responsible for corruption, and is it serving its original purpose? Does the market economy leave room for true freewill, and is it truly possible to shed ourselves of material goods?

ANNOUNCING THE 2ND ANNUAL "ZEITGEIST MEDIA FESTIVAL" GLOBAL AWARENESS EVENT, 2012!

2012-04-01 00:00:00 UTC

ANNOUNCING THE 2ND ANNUAL "ZEITGEIST MEDIA FESTIVAL" GLOBAL AWARENESS EVENT, 2012!

Global Website: http://www.zeitgeistmediafestival.org/

Beginning the weekend of August 3rd 2012, The 2nd Annual Zeitgeist Media Festival Global will commence!

ABOUT: Recognizing the power of art and media to help change the world, the annual "Zeitgeist Media Festival"(ZMF) bridges the artistic & activist communities in the hope to inspire change. It recognizes that deeply needed, radical changes in the structural/economic workings of society can only manifest in tandem with a personal/social transformation of values in each of us.

Keeping the gesture of the long history of influential artistic creators whose vision have changed our world for the better, the ZMF works to unify the world through this expression with the basic ethos that we are One Species sharing One Planet and it is time the world learns to work together for the betterment of all before it is too late.

The Inaugural Event for the now annual Zeitgeist Media Festival occurred in 2011 with over 40 events occurring across 20 countries. While started by the non-profit, social sustainability activist organization The Zeitgeist Movement, the ZMF is open to any socially conscious group which also wishes to join in the expression for a more balanced, peaceful world through the medium of art.

MAIN EVENT IN LOS ANGELES, CA, USA: In 2011, the Main Event was at the Music Box in Hollywood CA, USA in late September.

For 2012, the LA Main Event has been set for Aug 5th at Bardot in Hollywood. Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/251001

Also, all Main Events are always Streamed Live (Free) for the Global Audience via the Web. In 2011, well over 150,000 people tuned in from all over the world.

EVENT SUBMISSION: Starting May 1st, our Submission Form will be posted on the Global Site. Please check back at that time and work to prepare your parallel event in the meantime.

EVENT THEME: The Theme for 2012 is socially conscious Film Shorts. If you have a 3-10 min video short which is your own work and would like to submit it for free for consideration for screening the Main Event in LA, USA, please upload it to the internet and send a link via the Website. All submissions sent will remain private and only viewed by our LA curators.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Mission of The Zeitgeist Media Festival is to unify the world through annual awareness events that bridge the difference between all nations, races, classes, genders and creeds; to understand we all share the same basic needs; to understand we are truly One Family sharing One Habitat and that our world views and hence societal approaches should reflect this foundational Global Perspective. The ZMF works to help facilitate this unifying expression for all socially conscious organizations that wish to use the power of Art to effect change in the social "Zeitgeist" - advancing our value system to see how much positive possibility there is for real social change if we choose not to fear it.

About: The Zeitgeist Movement is a global sustainability activist group working to bring the world together for the common goal of species sustainability before it is too late. It is a social movement, not a political one, with over 1000 chapters across 70 countries. Divisive notions such as nations, governments, races, political parties, religions, creeds or class are non-operational distinctions in the view of The Movement. Rather, we recognize the world as one system and the human species as a singular unit, sharing a common habitat. Our overarching intent could be summarized as “the application of the scientific method for social concern.”
