In case you haven’t heard, there is a newly released documentary about the Financial Independence, Retire Early movement.
Specifically, the doc is about one couple’s journey from living the standard consumer lifestyle, to embracing frugality and heading towards Financial Independence.
The movie features many people readers may be familiar with. Royalty of the US early retirement scene, really. Bloggers like Mr Money Mustache, JL Collins, and the Mad FIentist. As well as JD Roth from Get Rich Slowly, Vicki Robin, Author of ‘Your Money or Your Life’ and the guys from Choose FI.
The movie is currently screening in cities all over the US. And of course, there’s a rapidly growing FI scene right here in Australia too. So screenings are organised for Melbourne and Sydney (so far).
I believe the Melbourne one has already sold out. But I’m sure there’ll be more viewings! At this stage, there are no other cities confirmed.
The details for the Sydney premiere are here – Playing with FIRE Sydney.
Date: Wednesday 14th of August.
Time: 6pm onwards.
Location: University of New South Wales.
After the film, there will be a Q&A session, with a panel of Aussie bloggers. These include…
Yep, I’ll be flying over from Perth for this special event! And that’s slightly terrifying because I’m deathly afraid of public speaking and also not a fan of large crowds. So it’s obviously a perfect fit!
But in all seriousness, I’m forcing myself to face my fears because it’s a special event. And because of the invitation to be on the panel. Otherwise, it’s pretty likely I continue to wuss out on other things like this, indefinitely!
Anyway, the early bird tickets are sold out. But general tickets have just been released. So if you live in the harbour city, want to see the movie and hang out with some like-minded people, grab a ticket!

And for those who are going, please come say hello! It would be great to meet you in person! 🙂
