Growing Cities- “What If…” Film Series Screening

September 16, 2014 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

The Gifford Foundation “What If…” Film Series kicks off its Fall 2014 Series with this presentation of Growing Cities.

Growing Cities (60min) By Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette

In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time.

Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

Doors open at 6:00 for light snacks, meet and greet, gallery viewings.

About the Gifford Foundation “What If…” Film Series:

Films for our community, to help change our community, selected by our community. The Film Series screens documentaries, selected by community members, which offer examples of how social issues are addressed across the country. The goal of these free films is not to only tell the tales, but embrace how Syracuse and Central New York might adapt the stories for our own. Each film shown at ArtRage is followed by a moderated discussion; in addition two of the films will be shown at off-site locations in partnership with community based organizations.

Growing Cities will also be shown on Thursday, September 25 @ Southwest Community Center, 401 South Ave. with special guest Chef Will Lewis
