Second annual F.E.T.C.H. Film Festival Saturday, Nov. 3
Sustainable Berkeley Springs (SBS) is holding its second annual F.E.T.C.H. Film Festival Saturday, November 3 at the Paradox room of the Ice House, in Berkeley Springs.
The festival is free again this year, and three films will be screened. All address and advance the goals of SBS. The first film will start at 1 p.m. and is called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” Contrary to the sound of the title, this film is an entertaining and heartwarming film about the health benefits of making and drinking juice made by yourself. A juicing demonstration will follow the film.
The second film is entitled, “Escape From Suburbia,” and deals with some solutions on how to live well after the energy crisis, and ways to help the community. It screens at 3:30 p.m.
The final film, “Bag It,” will be shown at 7 p.m. It is a humorous and eye opening film about where all those plastic bags come from, where they end up, what can be done to help this throwaway travesty.
Pack a lunch and plan on staying all day. There will be facilitated discussions after the second and third films.
