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?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The 2nd Annual Zeitgeist Media Festival Global Success!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The 2nd Annual Zeitgeist Media Festival Global Success!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: >SUCCESS OF THE 2012 ZEITGEIST MEDIA FESTIVAL, LOS ANGELES & GLOBAL

During the Weekend of August 5th 2012, an incredible gesture of Global Unity & Socially Conscious Artistic Expression occurred across the world from Australia to Vancouver, BC. Coupled with a Global Food Drive to help the growing poor population, the 2nd Annual Zeitgeist Media Festival is working to inspire creative change in a world which seems to be running out of ideas to help itself.

In the words of journalist Bruce Lyons of "Hollywood Today": "It was a Festival of full-spectrum conviction, overflowing with compelling emotions that reflect the real conundrums pressing in upon our emerging global society with accelerating force. In this sense this now-annual Festival is a natural outgrowth of a growing, terrestrial upheaval that is going to leave no part of man’s collective being untouched."

[ http://www.hollywoodtoday.net/2012/08/14/zeitgeist-media-festival-2012-a-celebration-to-be-shared-with-the-entire-earth/ ]

The Main Event in Los Angeles CA packed hundreds of people into the Historic Avalon Hollywood Club with a 37 segment, 7 Hour Program, featuring everything from Films to Comedy to Avant-Garde Theatrics. Featuring renowned, Multi-Cultural Musical Artists such as Sussan Deyhim, Cofield Mundi & Lili Haydn to counter-culture icons like Marianne Williamson and Rutger Hauer, this non-profit event raised over 700 Pounds of food, working on a purely volunteer platform with logistical/curation support from Steve Robertson's Project Peace on Earth [ http://www.projectpeaceonearth.org/ ] the LA FoodBank, The Artivist Film Festival [ https://artivist.com/ ] and more.

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.

Mission: 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 TZM: 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.” http://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com/
