Food + Film : Fed Up Screening

Presented by Rodale Books

Laurie David, Author, The Family Cooks
Paul Holdengraber, Director, Live from New York Public Library

The Food Book Fair will host the first New York screening of the documentary “Fed Up followed by a Q&A with Executive Producer Laurie David. A film that upends the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, “Fed Up” reveals a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public, resulting in one of the largest health epidemics in history. David will also discuss her new book, The Family Cooks.

Book signing to follow in Wythe Library (12:00-12:30PM)

 

Food + Farming + Scale Panel

Margaret Gray, Author, Labor and the Locavore
Scott Chaskey, Author, Seedtime
Theresa Marquez, Mission Executive, Organic Valley

As a community awareness with regards to the sustainable food movement grows, the question of scalabilty becomes ever more pertinent. How can local, organic food be made accessible on a larger scale? Does that goal detract from the very mission of keeping food production on a small scale? How can a balance be reached? Come hash out some of these questions with some industry experts.

 

Food + Social Entrepreneurship Session

Sunday, April 27, 2:00PM – 3:00PM

The acts of preparing, serving, and eating food are some of humanity’s simplest forms of community. The locally- and socially-engaged aspects of cooking and dining are often challenged by the industrial scale of contemporary food production.

A natural launchpad for enterprise, small food and drink establishments are an ideal vehicle to employ socially conscious practices. Entrepreneurs, writers, and editors will engage in conversation over how to create and maintain business with this focus.

Special guests include:

  • Ellen Gustafson, Co-Founder of FEED and Food Tank, Author of We the Eaters
  • Christophe Hille, CFO, Northern Spy Food Co. and Fleisher’s Grass-fed Organic Meats
  • Steve Hindy, Co-Founder of Brooklyn Brewery, Author of TheCraft Beer Revolution
  • Moderated by Alex Postman, Executive Editor, Rodale Books

In 2010, Jeremy completed his debut film, DIVE!, Living Off America’s Waste.

In 2010 with the release of DIVE!, Jeremy began the production company, Compeller Pictures. He is now a filmmaker and activist, traveling the country and speaking on humanitarian and environmental issues.

Through the making of the film, he has once again found the heart of the project in his own journey and awakening. Talk to Jeremy about how to find the story in your own film and making meaningful media.
