Hungry Filmmakers’ “celluloid buffet” + WOAO? t-shirts

hf_posterWith less than a week to go before the big event at Anthology Film Archive in NYC, the Hungry Filmmakers have already sold out all the online tickets! …Seems like audiences are hungry, too!

We even drummed up enough buzz for a listing in Wednesday’s NY Times Food and Dining Calendar as a “celluloid buffet!” (It is purposefully obscure, since we’ll likely only have standing room… But it’s still pretty cool!) Check it out:

Good news for those of you who still want to come–send an email to to be put on the waiting list for tickets. Our inimitable Jimmy Carbone will then send out a message to you on the day of the event to let you know what’s up : )

woaoshirtmockWe’ll also have our own limited edition hand-screen printed WOAO? organic cotton T-shirts for sale at the event! They’ll make great holiday gifts! (I’ll let you know if we have any leftover for online sales…or send me an email if you want to reserve one to be mailed to your special someone!)

Thanks to Bena Burda and Doug Wilson at Maggie’s Functional Organics for donating the shirts! And much gratitude to our ever talented Georg Pederson for the design and screen printing skills! His DIY spirit always inspires me!!

Hope to see some of you next week or sometime soon! Give a holler if you have a conference, meeting or gathering coming up where you’d like to host a screening… we’re gearing up for all that now!


Six Delectable Films and Many Hungry Filmmakers

I love fresh food. And I love films. And know I’m not the only one out there…so what if I tell you that on December 15, 2009 at the Anthology Film Archives there will be an event combining the two worlds? Check it out:

Hungry logo for press releaseHUNGRY FILMMAKERS is an evening of excerpts from upcoming doc films that take on food and agricultural issues. Shelley is co-curating the event alongside food writer Cathy Erway. We’ve all asked the questions, so now it’s time to see some reactions to the growing discussion of the environment and food, farming and our eating choices. A panel discussion with the attending filmmakers will immediately follow the screenings. Anna Lappé, food activist and author, will keep the discussion rolling and get your questions answered as moderator.

Now, I did mention food? At 9 pm come on over to Jimmy’s No 43 for an after party filled with good people, good discussion and of course good eats. Sample some hors d’oeuvres from locally sustainable purveyors such as Blue Isle Oyster Company, Mama O’s Kimchee, 3-Corner Field Farm, Schoolhouse Kitchen and more. A bar and Restaurant, Jimmy’s No. 43 uses local farm-sourced ingredients from Slow Food NYC and believes in supporting local arts and sustainable food communities.

The films:
What’s “Organic” About Organic? – Shelley Rogers
Big River and Truck Farm – Curt Ellis & Ian Cheney
The Greenhorns – Severine von Tscarner Fleming
Grown in Detroit – Manfred & Mascha Poppenk
Faces from the New Farm – Liz Tylander, Kat Shiffler & Lara Sheets
