SustainFloyd Film Series
Since 2011 SustainFloyd has been showing a series of documentary films relating to our mission. It’s one way to get enliven the local discussion of issues relating to securing a sustainable future.
Our film committee considers ideas for films submitted by board and community members and tries to offer documentaries covering a wide rage of topics. Typically we show 6 films a year, 3 in the spring and three in the fall, each designed as the basis of a community gathering and discussion. Our hope is that these events offer ideas and hope of ways that both individuals and community groups can make an impact.
Spring 2018 Film Series
The next film of our 2018 Spring series is Wasted! The Story on Food Waste on March 29th at 6PM.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows ushow each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
Join us for this incredibly important film about food waste and the importance they hold for us every day.
The film will be screened at The Floyd Country Store (203 Locust St.) and doors open at 6PM for a potluck with neighbors and friends. We hope to see you there!
