On Thursday, September 23rd, Bitcoin Movie Club co-founders, former city council candidate Zack Weiner and Joe Gallagher, hosted the Premiere of This Machine Greens at The Atelier Condo in New York City.
A select group of VIP guests including Co-creator of Dora the Explorer, Eric Weiner, representatives from Swan Bitcoin, Tik Tok star Sarah Coffey and the DIRTY Magazine team, enjoyed specialty popcorn, SESH, a cocktail-inspired seltzer and cocktail creations from JAJA Tequila, an eco-friendly produced tequila brand that sponsored the event.
Midway through the event, the intimate group of 25 guests took their seats in the private theater to get a first look at This Machine Greens, directed by Jamie King. The movie is the first to be fully crowdfunded and financed by Bitcoin released on Swan Bitcoin and YouTube. The documentary film stars cryptocurrency investor Nic Carter and key figures within the bitcoin orb and explores the emerging currency’s relationship to climate change. The film was produced by Jamie King of Schism Films, Enrique Posner of L9 Goodes and Zack Weiner and Joe Gallagher of The Bitcoin Movie Club.
This Machine Greens’ production team are collaborating on TRUST (trust.film) a new documentary feature in development, which is also crowdfunding its production in Bitcoin and, where possible, remaining within the Bitcoin economy.
