Plant Based News‘ most recent documentary Vegan 2019 has reached 130,000 views since its release on the evening of December 1 on YouTube.

The film, which was directed and produced by PBN founder Klaus Mitchell, looks at some of the most significant vegan moments from the last 12 months.

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.

Global premiere

Vegan 2019 has its global premiere this weekend in cinemas in London, Los Angeles, and Beijing.

Hundreds of people came to cinemas in central locations in the cities to watch the documentary, which features leading names in the world of entertainment, sports, and animal advocacy.

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 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.
