Pop-up local food cinema at Oberlin food-hub event

The Pop-up Local Food Cinema will play three films as a part of a Pop-Up Food Hub. The films include the work of local film-makers Tom Kondilas (LESS Productions, Cleveland), Mika Johnson (Art + Practice, Oberlin), and Brad Masi (Blue Heron Productions, Oberlin). Together, the films weave a mosaic of challenges, ideas, and practices coming from those on the ground working to grow local food economies in northeast and southeast Ohio. Whether backyard homesteading. creating community investment capital, or improving local food access in urban neighborhoods, these films capture local food works from Cleveland, Oberlin, Athens, and other communities in northeast and southeast Ohio.

The film schedule will be:10:30-11:30 "Network Theory" network weaving in and around Athens, Ohio11:30-12:30 "PolyCultures" how urban and rural communities find commonality in Northeast Ohio12:30-1:30 "For the Love of Food" a local food web that connects education, business, and small-town local economy in Oberlin, Ohio.

Films are free and open to the public. The films feature an interconnected web of vignettes, each with their own narrative. You can come in and out as you like.
