Going Local – Online screening with Bristol Food Network

June 29 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+1

| Free

Our fourth fortnightly #BristolFoodKind Films Series will be focussing on the power of local. This time we bring you a double feature of two fantastic films about local food, followed by a Q&A with the film makers!

First, another super film from the team behind In Our Hands, Black Bark Films:

100 Miles & 2 Mouths

In 2015 Holly Black and Jo Barker decided to only eat food from within 100 miles of their home city Bristol for an entire year, to find out what it truly means to eat local. This documentary short follows their highs and lows as new feasts are foraged, old traditions explored and tantrums thrown.

Secondly, an inspiring film celebrating the local food movement, featuring Shelia Dillon, Pam Warhurst, Guy Watson and more:

Local Food Routes

This inspiring documentary chronicles the emergence of an innovative local food movement from a handful of pioneers battling against the odds in the early 90s to the diverse UK-wide movement of today. From the first organic box schemes to feeding cities and local food culture, we explore the diversity, motivations, challenges and opportunities and what this might mean for our future.

Afterwards, Jo Barker and Joy Carey, the makers of the respective films, will be joining us for a Q&A session.

Register to reserve your free place here on the Eventbrite page.

You will receive a URL link on the day of the screening to the email address you have registered with, and as we watch together we invite you to join in the conversation online.

#BristolFoodKind is a campaign to create a community of acts of kindness through food during the lockdown. This community is sharing practical ideas for how you can buy food, reduce waste and grow from home, in a way that is considerate to yourself and your community at a time of crisis. By building momentum behind this campaign, together we can support and inspire one another, and encourage others to be #BristolFoodKind. We hope to emerge from this crisis with a food community even stronger than it was before.
