Film fest ends 2009 with powerful documentary

News Oct 29, 2009 Ancaster News

The last Ancaster Film Fest screening for 2009 will be Food Inc. on Monday, Nov. 2 at 4 and 7:15 p. m. at Ancaster Silver City. Food Inc. is an eye-opening exposé of the modern food industry.

Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner uses reports by Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser and The Omnivore's Dilemma author Michael Pollan as a springboard to exploring where the food we purchase at the grocery store really comes from and what it means for the health of future generations.

By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, Mr. Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry.

Proceeds of $1,400 from the previous Ancaster Film Fest screenings were split between the Neighbour to Neighbour Food Bank and the Good Shepherd Food Bank. Proceeds from Food Inc. will go to Hamilton Food Share and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

Non-members pay $9 at the 4 p. m. screening and $10 at the 7:15 p. m. screening. The 2010 season will begin on Monday, Jan. 11. Memberships for 2010 are sold out but there will always be plenty of room for nonmembers. AFF averages close to 200 nonmembers at any screening.
