We all use money, and yet the questions of what is money, and where does money come from remain elusive.

FINDING THE MONEY follows former chief economist to the Senate Budget Committee, Stephanie Kelton, on a journey through Modern Money Theory or “MMT”, to unveil a deeper story about money, injecting new hope and empowering democracies around the world to tackle the biggest challenges of the 21st century: from climate change to inequality.

Join award winning director and producer Maren Poitras for an exclusive audience Q&A following the screening.

Later in March, the Festival will present a special post Festival event with US Economist, Stephanie Kelton who is featured in the film.

“If we have a vision for a better future, money is not the scarce resource we need to go out and find before we can start building it. Money is the organizing tool we can use to mobilize our people and real resources to make that vision a reality.”
