You might remember when we covered the hot new documentary Vegucated – a film about three meat lovers who take a vegan challenge and get their minds blown after seeing first hand some of the shocking truths about animal agriculture.

After doubling attendance records and winning Best Documentary at the Toronto Independent Film Festival, the filmmakers are taking the show on the road.

Starting this week, the Vegucated team will be traveling from sea to shining sea, spreading the good gospel of plant-based living as part of their “Let’s Get America Vegucated!” Fall 2011 Tour.

The tour kicks off with the U.S. premiere at the SVA Theatre in New York City on Thursday, October 13. Attendees will have the chance to mingle with the cast and crew and participate in a special after party, featuring some of the city’s best vegan eats and drinks.

VIPs from NYC’s veg scene will be in attendance, including Ecorazzi’s very own Michael Parrish DuDell, who’s emceeing the evening, artist Peter Max, author/health counselor Alex Jamieson, who detoxed Morgan Spurlock after his binge in Super Size Me, Simone Reyes from the show Running Russell Simmons, and many more.

Tickets start at only $15 dollars and include admittance to the event and a special post film Q&A.

    I was totally lucky enough to see this film early. Wow. I was already veg, but my husband who is an omni hasn’t eaten meat since he saw it. That was 6 months ago.

    The film is so different from other food docs. It’s funny, informative, emotional and doesn’t show you footage that makes you want to cry every five minutes. This is the doc that’s going to change people’s lives. Go see it. You’ll be happy you did.

    This is bound to be a seminal film in the change of diet in the US. Congratulations to all connected with this wonderful project and on the New York City launch of the US tour! Well done all!!
