Slow Foodies

For all of you who appreciate food grown the slow, old fashioned way, the Slow Food Film Festival is heading again to Bologna. Marsha and Greg will be visiting then, but if anyone else is interested (Kenji?), it is a great introduction to this organization.

Slow Food on Film International Festival of Food and Film Bologna: May 6-10, 2009

Slow Food on Film is an international festival that matches passion for film with that for food, while also promoting a new critical awareness of food culture. The festival plays host to screenings of films, short films, documentaries and TV series that focus on food-related issues (drives, perversions, identity and emotional implications) in an original way, as well as on the agricultural and food industry’s repercussion on society and the environment, and on gastronomic memory as a common heritage to be safeguarded.

After the great success of the first edition in Bologna (2,000 daily spectators, 1,350 Slow snacks sold and 800 accredited journalists from 20 countries), Slow Food on Film will be back May 6-10, 2009.
