Late last year, WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio (“The Linda”) debuted a film series called “Food For Thought”. It’s a monthly evening of food, film and discussion with a focus on films of social, political, environmental and community interest. Held on the third Thursday of each month, it features food samples by Honest Weight Food Co-op, the feature film screening, and an open panel discussion.

food-inc-poster-2I can’t believe I’m just hearing about this series, but now that I know about it, I hope to get over there a few times a year to catch one of the films.  I’m definitely going in October – the film is “Food, Inc.,” which I discussed in a previous post.  The Spectrum 8 (hands-down the coolest movie theatre in the area) is showing it now, so maybe I’ll get over there to see it in the upcoming weeks (perhaps the next time Bob travels out of town). 

Incidentally, here’s a review of the film, from yesterday’s Times Union: ‘Food, Inc.’ an appetite killer — Page 1 — Times Union – Albany NY:2862:



Planning ahead: As the Schenectady County Special Events Coordinator, I am interested in presenting a food-related film series this fall, in conjunction with “Celebrate Schenectady’s Bounty,” our month-long celebration of local food and agriculture.  Will keep you posted.
