The Sedona International Film Festival joins cities and towns nationwide to host screenings of the documentary "Fixing the Future", spurring action toward strengthening local economies. This one-night-only event will take place Wednesday, July 18 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. There will be two shows at 4 and 7 p.m.

"Fixing the Future" is part of the festival's "Docs That Make a Difference" series and part of the Sedona Green sustainable film track that is so popular at the festival each year. The Sedona International Film Festival has been working to create awareness of global and environmental issues and encouraging audiences to tackle these challenges. On July 18, the festival will join dozens of other communities across the country as part of a one-night-only event to jumpstart local, sustainable economies.

In "Fixing the Future", host David Brancaccio (of public radio's Marketplace and NOW on PBS) visits locations across America that are using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity, inspiring hope and renewal amidst economic collapse.

The screenings of "Fixing the Future" will be followed by an exclusive onscreen discussion panel featuring:

• Bill McKibben: Author, environmentalist, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College 

• Majora Carter: Peabody Award winning broadcaster & Urban Revitalization Strategist 

• Mike Brady: CEO, Greyston Bakery & social entrepreneur 

• David Brancaccio: Host, NOW on PBS

The event kicks off the Sedona International Film Festival's participation in "Fixing the Future Across America", a national campaign led by JumpStart Productions, Area23a and the media strategy organization Active Voice. The festival is one of more than 50 groups around the country participating in the campaign, using "Fixing the Future" to encourage American communities to create resilient, local economies through innovative approaches to job creation. "Fixing the Future Across America" also links together a national network of business groups and community-based organizations working to improve their local economies.

"This screening is a unique opportunity to raise awareness about ways we can strengthen our economy, and get people involved" said Patrick Schweiss, director of the film festival. "Films like this are what festivals are all about - those films that inspire action and prompt the audience members to make a difference through active participation and awareness."

"Fixing the Future" will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on one night only: Wednesday, July 18, at 4 and 7 p.m.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members ($6 for full-time students). For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theater and film festival office are located at 2030 W. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.com.
