PCFN sponsors two films at Re-Frame Film Festival

Judging by the thermometer, winter has most certainly arrived in Peterborough!  With winter comes snow, skating on the canal and the annual ReFrame Peterborough International Film Festival!

The ReFrame Film Festival, with the theme Film Worth Talking About, will be held in downtown Peterborough this coming weekend from Friday, January 23 to Sunday, January 25, 2015.  ReFrame will feature a number of food related films throughout the weekend.  Members of the Peterborough Community Food Network are pleased to be acting as a sponsor of two films at this year’s festival:

The Hand that Feeds

Directed by Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnick
Saturday, January 25 at 11:20 am, Showplace Theater

The Family Farm

Saturday evening will feature a showing, sponsored by Kawartha World Issues Café and ReFrame Festival, of the film Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story at 7:30pm.  Along with the film will be a presentation by Dr. Wayne Roberts, entitled Rummaging through the Myth – the True Cost of Food Waste. Dr. Roberts is a renowned Canadian food-policy analyst and writer who has been involved with the Toronto Food Policy council, the city of Toronto’s Environmental Task Force and the Coalition of a Green Economy.

A Panel Discussion entitled Food Activism and the Taste of Justice, will be held on Sunday, January 25 from 11am to noon.  The discussion will be moderated by PCFN member Joëlle Favreau from the YWCA and panelists will include Jill Bishop, Ryan DeCaire, Carolyn Doris and Wayne Roberts.
