Opening Night in Portland a Success! Only 9 More Screenings This Weekend!

The Portland Mercury called Fuel "astounding."

Comment from last night:

"It is our civic responsibility to see this film and spread the word!!"

"It is our civic responsibility to see this film and spread the word!! Fuel will inspire and motivate Americans to change our economic and energy policies, and Portlanders have the opportunity to help bring this film to the main stream. I was there at opening night and was amazed, shocked, entertained and inspired. There are 'solutions.' Josh Tickell has spent the last 11 years of his life finding the solutions to our dependency on oil and teaching others about them. There are only a few more showings of Fuel while it is in Portland. Be there! Then you can say you were there at the beginning when Fuel ignited the country's economic and energy policy revolution. Bring your parents, your brothers and sisters, tell you friends about it, teach your kids, do your part and help Portland help Josh Tickell start The Movement."

Our 7:30 showing was completely sold out.

People were even sitting on the floor during the Q&A!
Josh made a mad dash out of the screening to do a public access show on Hemp and how it can be used for fuel -- very entertaining;)

Tell everyone you know to go see Fuel this weekend in Portland. Our ability to go to other cities depends on it.

See you there!

After a long-awaited 11 years, it was exciting to watch as people lined up outside the box office.
