When: Friday, November 6, 2009 at 3:00pm at the Ojai Playhouse and Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 10:00am at the Matilija Auditorium
Where, Cost, and other details: Details are available on the Ojai-Ventura Film Festival website; additional information is available by emailing info@ojaifilmfestival.com or by calling 805.640.1947.

Screenings will be followed by discussions with local food activists Jim Churchill, Marty Fujita, Claud Mann, and Delanie Ellis.

Written and directed by Robert Bates, Ingredients explores the thriving local food movement as our world becomes a more flavorless, disconnected, and dangerous place to eat. The film takes viewers across the United States from urban food deserts to heavily diversified farms to the kitchens of celebrated American chefs. Ingredients is a journey that reveals the people behind the movement to bring good food back to the table and health back to our communities.

As we learn of other screenings in the Los Angeles area we’ll share the news; in the meantime, watch the trailer below:
