Special Premiere Screening of "GMO OMG" Documentary

Post #: 1
Hello Eugene Veggies!

I wanted to let everyone know about an awesome event that So Delicious Dairy Free is hosting. We're a sponsor organization helping to get the wonderful documentary film "GMO OMG" into distribution. The official release date is next month, but our sponsorship gives us the opportunity to host a special one-night-only premiere screening on Friday, Aug. 16, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E. 13th Ave. in Eugene, Oregon!

The film follows one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in, “an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system.” In the film, director Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food “affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere.” All of our products are proudly Non-GMO Project verified, which means they’re certified to be free of any genetically modified ingredients, and we support current GMO labeling initiatives that are underway in Washington and Oregon.

Those attending the event will be treated to complimentary chocolate desserts from So Delicious and wine from King Estate winery prior to the screening. An expert panel discussion will be held on site immediately following the conclusion of the film. Panelists include Scott Bates, Director of GMO Free Oregon; Melissa Wischerath, attorney at law at The Center for Sustainability Law; and local farmer Tom Hunton. The moderator for the panel discussion will be The Oregonian’s Grant Butler.

Tickets for the one-time event cost $10 and are available to purchase here and in person at the Bijou Art Cinema box office. All proceeds from the event benefit the School Garden Project, a non-profit organization that helps Lane County schools create, sustain, and use onsite gardens by providing resources, professional consultation, and educational programming.

You can check out our blog for more information, or feel free to contact me through Meetup. I hope to see you there! I've already seen the movie, and it's fantastic. All proceeds benefit a fantastic cause, PLUS you get free wine and vegan ice cream. What's not to love?! Is there any interest in organizing an official meet up for the group to come to this?
