I am jumping for joy to see something like this has been produced!
Ever since I got hooked on watching Geoff Lawton's videos where he visits various permaculture sites, I was thinking "someone needs to make a feature length documentary about this stuff in order to inspire and spread the good word!"
Lo and behold it was already a work in progress.
So happy to see this in the world!

This looks amazingly well produced, something American videos have not done for permaculture that often.

Thanks for sharing!

I would also like to point out there is an opportunity for this community to earn money sharing this video on your blog, website, etc:

http://inhabitfilm.com/distribution/

"THROUGH A PIONEER VIDEO PLATFORM CALLED YEKRA YOU CAN BECOME AN INHABIT AFFILIATE WHICH ESSENTIALLY ALLOWS YOU TO EARN REVENUE BY SHARING THE FILM.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CREATE A FREE ACCOUNT AND RECEIVE A LINK OF THE FILM FOR YOU TO POST ON YOUR SITE AND EVERY TIME SOMEONE PURCHASES/RENTS/DOWNLOADS THE FILM THROUGH YOUR LINK YOU WILL RECEIVE 20% OF THE REVENUE. WE FEEL THIS TOOL RECIRCULATES THE RESOURCES AND IS A MUCH MORE "FAIR SHARE" MODEL!"

Hopefully people like Jack Spirko and others with an audience (even if it's just your family), will take this affiliate model and run with it.

Lastly, it's only 4 bucks to rent and 8 bucks to buy this amazing video in advance.

Support great work!

I just saw the Vermont premier of the movie in Burlington a few days ago. Is this the place to discuss the film? It would be great to hear everybody's perspectives on it. I thought it was a great introduction to permaculture for the general public and shows all sorts of different facets of the permaculture movement. It'd be great if the folks who made this documentary did follow up films that went more in-depth in different bioregions (they didn't visit any sites in the northwest, which is arguably where the permaculture movement is strongest) and showed people how they might get involved in their local areas.

I supported the kickstarter for this film and while I enjoyed it very much, they haven't actually fulfilled the promise that was given at my level (unless I'm being stupid which is a possibility). I have tried contacting them (on kickstarter through comments and a message and also at the inhabitfilm.com contact page) but have had no response so far which is frustrating although maybe it's because they are so busy with the release and so on. I hope so but I'm left feeling a bit flat. Below are my main gripes. I write these not (just) to whinge and moan but also to see if anyone else has experienced this sort of issue.

I have an email from when I supported the project outlining my rewards as follows:

REWARD
SPECIAL EDITION DVD: you will receive a signed hard copy of the DVD including (I have the dvd but it is not signed. No biggie but it is not as advertised)
3 hours of extended footage from the site tours! (from what I can see there are just under 55 minutes of additional footage, not 3 hours. This is my main gripe as this is the reason I supported at the level that I did)
+ a digital copy (I have this. Yay)
+ hi-res photos. (Could not find these)
Thank you for the support!
ESTIMATED DELIVERY
Dec 2014 (Late but this was an estimate so whatever. happy to wait for a better product)

Also, unless there is footage from a site tour in my missing 2 hours, putting Geoff Lawton's name on this seems a bit much. I think it was about 15 seconds of him talking with agricultural footage in the background. I was assuming (my bad I guess) that there'd be a bit of footage with him talking about and showing us Zaytuna farm or other projects he's been involved in.

Am I really being a dummy or have others had a similar experience?

As it stands currently, I would recommend the film but probably won't support another kickstarter for these guys and will just wait until a release and get the film for $8 instead of $50.

I had an experience similar to that of Joshua Christian, except I gave them a lot more money. I asked only for a DVD of the film, and got nothing. Well, I did get a link to a limited-time stream, but I didn't use it because I figured, "hey, I'll be getting the DVD"...

I've written to them and gotten no response. This has soured me a bit towards funding stuff in this fashion.

I can totally understand being frustrated about this. However, I know that the two film makers Emmet and Costa are doing absolutely everything by themselves and I know from experience how overwhelming all of that can be. So yes, you have every right to annoyed, but I just sort of have a soft spot for these guys because I've been in their shoes.

Cassie, I managed to get in touch with Costa, and he's setting me up with the download and DVD.
Just wanted everyone to know that he has set things right.

Looking forward very much to viewing it this weekend!

Hi,

questions about the movie INHABIT, a permaculture perspective: is it worth it? Many exited talks about how the movie will come out (it was a year ago), but since then nothing on this forum.

For what kind of audience would you recommend it (if at all...)?
-introduction for people with no knowledge
-permie experts who want to enjoy a nice movie with known examples
-...

best
