The following is a note from SFF student Sierra Torres….
I am reaching out to you all today with a really awesome opportunity to help plan some events for SFF community and beyond this semester. Currently I am organizing a three part film series surrounding issues within the food system or related to climate justice in general.
Because this event is being designed for your enjoyment, I wanted to get feedback on which films you would like to see this semester. The following link is a brief poll where you can vote on which film you would like to see. There will also be links to the trailers if you have not heard of the films.
The top two films will be shown in March (dates to be determined). This poll will close on February 20th.
Based on what movies you all choose, we hope to also host a panel of local speakers in the field of study related to the films after the showings. If you have someone in mind who might be a perfect speaker for one of the films, feel free to leave a comment on the last question on the survey or feel free to email me personally.
There will also be a contest for you all to submit designs for the poster. So if you love drawing or working with digital art, we will be running a contest for you all to submit designs of your original art work for the posters. The person with the best poster will win a Stockbridge Sweatshirt. Attached below is a PDF with the contest details. Feel free to email me with questions.
Thank you all so much and I look forward to your help,
