01/17/19 Food and Farm Film Festival
There’s a growing conversation about food: we want to know what we are eating, whether it’s healthy, where it comes from, who made or grew it, and if it’s sustainable. The food-consciousness movement is a powerful force, and thanks to the Food and Farm Film Fest, it now has a creative outlet.
Curator Sarah Nelson will be joining us for an encore showing of the 14 short films featured in the sixth annual Food and Farm Film Fest in San Francisco. From the art of handmade candy to the traditions of Alaskan fishermen, this program will present a view into the food lover's imagination. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to head straight to the kitchen.
