Countdown to Zero Premiere

On Tuesday 21st June – Demand Zero Day – audiences across the UK and Ireland joined together for the simultaneous nationwide premiere of Countdown to Zero.

The main Gala event took place at London’s BAFTA and served as the opening of the historic Global Zero London summit. A distinguished array of high-profile dignitaries, UK parliamentarians, and celebrities came and mingled both before and after the film to discuss the film and the lively Q&A discussion panel that followed. Oscar-winning producer Lawrence Bender moderated the panel, which featured Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, The Right Honourable Margaret Beckett, ex-CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson, and Bruce Blair, Co-Founder of Global Zero. The panel was broadcast live via satellite and web-stream to the 70 participating venues across the UK and Ireland, with questions being sent in by both text message and Twitter, from Aberystwyth to Dublin.
