Tucson: Canned Film Festival – Farmageddonby Karyn Zoldan on Sep. 16, 2011, under Desert Locavore, Food Ethics
There’s a hidden war raging against local family farms by the corporate agricultural machine. The new documentary film Farmageddon sheds light on this battle over our dinner plates, arguing for “food freedom” in the face of industrial might.
To kick-off the opening of this movie at The Loft, there will be a Farmer’s Network gathering from 6 to 7 p.m. on Friday September 16 on the Loft patio. Mingle and connect with the farmers and activists working to build a resilient local food system.
From Friday, September 16 through Thursday, September 22, The Loft will be collecting canned food donations for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. September is “Hunger Action Month,” so come see a great film (regular admission prices) and help bring food to those in need in our community at this special Canned Film Festival at The Loft!
A screening of the film begins at 7 p.m. sharp. Native Seeds/SEARCH will be in attendance with information on arid lands-adapted seeds to support the local foods revolution.
Watch a film clip.
