Plant Based News‘ latest documentary Vegan 2019 is now available to watch on YouTube – garnering more than 51,000 views within 15 hours of its release.

The film, which was directed and produced by PBN founder Klaus Mitchell, tracks the progress of the vegan movement – and the challenges it has faced – over the last 12 months.

It has its global premiere this weekend in cinemas in London, Los Angeles, and Beijing. The screenings were followed by Q&A sessions featuring special guests including Emmy-winning journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell, and vegan entrepreneur and athlete Heather Mills among others.

Vegan 2019

In a bid to investigate the phenomenal growth of veganism over the last 12 months, Mitchell took a deep dive into how and why plant-based diets are rising to prominence, looking at some of the most significant vegan moments from the year.

These include growing awareness of the environmental impact of meat production due to catastrophes like the Amazon Rainforest fires, the growth of the plant-based meat industry – which saw its products take center-stage on fast food menus – and the rise in plant-based athletes.

Vegan 2019 features leading names in the world of entertainment, sports, and animal advocacy, whose stories weave together to create a thrilling tapestry of this vibrant movement.

Vegan 2019 is kindly sponsored by abilllionveg – the revolutionary new platform where you can find reviews and recommendations for vegan-friendly food, restaurants and products near you.
