Tonight Chefs for the Marcellus is hosting “Food Not Frack on Film,” an evening of short films and an informal panel discussion followed by an after-party at Jimmy’s No. 43 featuring frack-free New York beer (Never heard of Chefs for the Marcellus? It’s a group of chefs, restaurateurs, farmers, brewers, vintners, and other food professionals who want to protect our regional foodshed from the dangers of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas–aka “fracking.” Cool!).
Films include An Aerial View of Hydraulic Fracking Along the Marcellus Shale, shot over rural Pennsylvania by Pete Saltonstall of King Ferry Winery; The Sky is Pink, a short by the Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox, and excerpts from Dear Governor Cuomo, directed by Jon Bowermaster.
The program runs from 7 to 9 at Anthology Film Archives. Click here for more info and tickets. And don’t forgot the after-party at Jimmy’s No. 43!
