The Farm-to-Table Movement in Film: Black Bear Film Festival

Milford, PA

Sun, Oct. 19, 2014 – 2:00pm to Sun, Oct. 19, 2014 – 2:45pm

Place: Call for Directions

The Conservancy is excited to be participating in the film salon at Black Bear Film Festival this year - join us for our panel on Sunday afternoon! In the Upper Delaware River region, our vibrant local communities are intimately connected to our thriving farm and forest economies. Shopping local, growing local, and farm-to-table dining all connect us to the lands and waters that sustain us and enhance our quality of life. The five short films in this segment demonstrate how communities, neighborhoods, and schools across the country are seeing the benefits of eating fresh, healthy, local foods and finding ways to connect to the land, whether 100 acres of farmland or small rooftop gardens. Learn more about the farm to table movement and share insights in a panel and Q&A session with Sue Currier and Bethany Keene of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, filmmaker Christopher King (who directed the Conservancy’s Shop Local: Find Your Experience film), Grant Genzlinger (VP of the DHC’s Board and chef and co-owner of Settler’s Inn), and Brian Naftal of Flatbrook Farm. Films to be screened include Shop Local: Find Your Experience, A Greene Generation, Green Bronx Machine, Harmony Gardens, and Our Land.

Place: The Cooperage

Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy and The Cooperage for The Little Farm Show, an all-ages musical extravaganza about farming, food, and the environment. From the inception of the solar system, to sunset on Millicent's farm, the Magnificent MacDonald Twins explore the question, "Where does your food come from?" giving audiences a whirlwind spin of "The Greatest Show on Dirt!"   Created and performed by Tannis Kowalchuk and Brett Keyser of NACL Theatre, the vaudeville-inspired performance kicks up some dirt with live original music and high-spirited performances. Steeped in history, philosophy, and a wheel-barrow full of information, The Little Farm Show not only entertains young and old, but asks us to consider our food choices and the effect those decisions have on our bodies, the environment, and society. Suggested donation: $10/adult; $20/family.
