This is another joint event between ChicagoVeg and Chicagoland Independent & Documentary Films (CIDFilms) groups which will consist of two independent parts: a plant-based potluck and a film screening. You are welcome to join us for either (just the potluck or just the film) or for both. The potluck will start at 6:00 and the film will start at approximately 7:30 pm.
For potluck please bring:
A 100% plant-based (vegan) dish to share to serve 5 -7 people
A note with a list of ingredients and your name in case some may have allergies or questions
Although we will supply them, we encourage you to bring your own plates/bowl/utensils/drinking cup (to be more eco-friendly)
Please check what other people will bring and specify what dish you plan to bring in the RSVP Comment section so all of us won't bring a potato salad!
The food you bring can be prepared by you or bought from a store/restaurant as long as you know ALL ingredients. House of Ayurveda will provide beverages for us.
At 7:30 PM we plan to watch documentary Ingredients:
"Ingredients was one of the most expertly crafted and most effective documentaries about food that I have ever seen." – Eric Shlapak, Examiner.com
The film will follow by the film discussion and socializing.
We will have a free raffle as House of Ayurveda will give away some exciting prizes!
There is a nominal $5 donation to support House of Ayurveda hosting the events, but please don't let a lack of funds to stop you. Everyone is welcome!

Welcome film/movie fans! - Join us to meet other local Indie & Documentary film fans. Discuss and recommend indi films, documentaries, and other movies to one another.
The idea is to watch the films that pose various moral/ethical questions or expend awareness about different issues that our society and individuals are facing. Therefore we will be focusing on watching Independent or Documentary films rather than watching typical Hollywood movies that are mostly for entertaining purposes.
Choosing documentary films we will primarily focus on the following topics: Personal Growth, Self Improvement/Empowerment, Spirituality, Global Warming, Ecological/Environmental Issues, Sustainable/Green Technologies, Alternative Energy, Corporate/Industrial/Governmental abuse, Ethical/Moral issues, Vegetarianism/Veganism, Genetically Modified Food & GMO, Alternative Healing. However, we are open to any kind of films/movies that raise any ethical and other important topics suggested by our members.
Please feel free to recommend us movies/films that you would like to watch, movies/films that you watched and would like to watch again, or just movies/films that you suggest to watch for others.
