Is big oil dead? Through a combination of major metropolitan area theatrical runs and special event screenings, Revenge of the Electric Car will open across the country this fall. The film had its world premiere on Earth Day at the 2011 Tribeca International Film Festival, where it garnered strong reviews, and will close the 2011 Silverdocs, the premiere documentary film festival in the US. Revenge of the Electric Car provides communities with a one-of-kind platform to discuss how they can benefit from the use of electric cars and alleviate dependency on foreign oil.
As part of the non-traditional release, potential audiences can visit http://www.revengeoftheelectriccar.com/see-the-film.html to request the film in their market. The markets with the most votes will get the film first. In addition, Revenge of the Electric Car has partnered with Sierra Club, Electric Drive Transportation Association and a number of other corporate and non-profit organizations to help promote the film.
