Food & Farm Film Fest
Where: Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St. (at Valencia), 863-1087
When: Mar. 29-31
The rundown: The slate of six screenings that will make up the first-ever Food & Farm Film Fest has yet to be announced, but full festival passes are now on sale for those earlybird types (events will be sold separately closer to the date as well). Public submissions of short films under 30 minutes are still being considered, with the winning selections to be notified at the beginning of February.
There's a good reason to show support early: Proceeds from this undertaking benefit Three Squares, a local non-profit that offers nutrition education and works for greater access to healthy food. Volunteers are also being sought to help with promotion efforts in exchange for free tickets and sneak peeks at the Food & Farm Film Fest.
