Montavilla Food Co-Op presents: Food for Change

March 7 - 4:00 - FREE

Food For Change is a feature-length documentary film focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture. The movie tells the story of the cooperative movement in the U.S. through interviews, rare archival footage, and commentary by the filmmaker and social historians. This is the first film to examine the important historical role played by food co-ops, their pioneering quest for organic foods, and their current efforts to create regional food systems. Additionally, the film shows how the co-op movement strengthens communities where they are located, enhancing local economies and food security.

PDXtreme - Portland Underground Film Fest

December 4 - 6, 2015

What is PDXtreme? It’s a celebration of genre film. We want to show horror, crime, dark comedy and even applicable documentaries. Tales of the grotesque, the limits of the psychological, and bumps in the night whatever the cause! Does it take place in space? That’s cool too.
When it comes to blood or nudity and you’re worried other fests can’t handle it, you’re in the right place. The only limits are the law. Originality and diversity are not only encouraged, but celebrated. Submit today!
