Event Description

May 8, 12:30 - 9:30 pm

We are pleased to present the second annual Stone Soup Film Festival: Exploring the Politics of Food with film screenings that respond to the growing interest in food issues and emphasize the positive efforts being made to change our current food system and empower this generation to take action.

Stone Soup Film Festival is for everyone. This year's festival will explore a range of films from family health and nutrition, to food economics, urban gardening, aboriginal fisheries, ecology, and sustainable agriculture. Our program includes two BC films, short and long documentaries, youth and family films as well as experimental film.

Selections include: Dirt, which tells the amazing and little known story of the relationship between humans and living dirt; Milk in the Land, a beautiful and mesmerizing film that navigates the complex political and social history of industrial milk production; T’lina: A Rendering of Wealth, a film which shares an intimate view of the power of community and the strength of the Kwak'wala Nation in preserving their ooligan food fishery; What’s on your Plate?, a wonderful children friendly film which follows two eleven-year-old city kids as they explore their place in the food chain, and many more films!

Festival passes are $12, available at Britannia Community Centre
Admission to individual films is by donation (suggested donation $5).
All proceeds go to local community gardens.

Stone Soup Film Festival is presented as part of the 15th annual Stone Soup Festival
