There's a cool film event coming up. I'm just posting all of the info below and you can see for yourself:
After two sold-out sessions, the food documentary film screening and discussion event Hungry Filmmakers™ will return to Anthology Film Archives on May 24, 2010. Unlike any other festival or single film screening, Hungry Filmmakers continues its tradition of showcasing excerpts or trailers from six upcoming or newly produced films that are hungry for wider audiences. Each filmmaker or a representative of the film will be in attendance for a lively Q&A. The evening’s moderator will be Paula Crossfield, Managing Editor of Civil Eats, a blog that promotes critical thought about sustainable agriculture and food.
Hungry Filmmakers’ line up exposes further reasons to contemplate what we eat. From Ernie Park & Michael Graziano's urgent call for school lunch reform in Lunch Line, to George Langworthy and Maryam Henein's enlightening connection between bees and food in Vanishing of the Bees, to Ginalola Lowry's whimsical You Are What You Eat, each film clip will surely give audiences something to chew on.

· The Farmer and The Horse by Jared Flesher
· Lunch Line by Uji Films (Ernie Park and Michael Graziano)
