SustainFloyd is announcing the movies and dates chosen for its 2015 Fall Film Series. The popular documentary screenings at 7 p.m., preceded by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and followed by thought-provoking discussions at the Floyd Country Store will all be on Thursday nights this fall, starting with “Last Call at the Oasis” on October 8th. You don’t need to be a member of SustainFloyd to attend; everyone is invited.
“We choose films that are relevant to Floyd as it sees itself in the world community,” said SustainFloyd President Jackie Crenshaw. “Last Call at the Oasis” looks at our most precious resource, water, and the impending global water crisis. This is truly a riveting documentary.”
Pasta and noodles are cooked in water, so SustainFloyd is offering a “Noodle Night” dinner at 6:30 p.m. before the movie, which will include a variety of noodle dishes. The movie will start at about 7 p.m. and an expert panel will follow the film.
On Thursday night, November 12th SustainFloyd will show “Fed Up,” which poses the question, “Why are Americans Getting Fat?” The answer may surprise you in this well-researched, fascinating documentary. A healthy soup and salad dinner will precede “Fed Up” and there will be a great discussion afterwards.
Then to celebrate the holiday season, all are invited to bring a dish for a potluck dinner on Thursday evening, December 10th and to see the touching film, “The Family Farm,” about the joys and difficulties of running a small farm. An interesting discussion will wrap-up the evening.
