I took a cursory glance over the past year to get an overall picture of what has happened here in California with The Zeitgeist Movement and started to see the accomplishments form into a remarkable list. And with the culmination of the global release of Peter's 3rd film, Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, it couldn't be more appropriately named. We are certainly moving forward as noted below...New Subchapters formed in 2010
(see the ZMCA Chapter Page
for full list)
- Long Beach
- Ventura County
- Santa Barbara
- March 13th Zday events in LA, OC, SD, SF

- More than a dozen venue’d screenings of Addendum throughout the state
- Several state-wide banner events (freeways, intersections, festivals)
