Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, March 18, 2015 11B ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT Event is free to the public The inaugural Seed Film Festival will be held at Feather River College on Wednesday, March 25. The free film fest begins at 7 p.m. in the Science building in room 104 and will feature eight short films that last under 90 minutes. Permaculturalist Michelle Beaman, who is also a community member with a background in social justice, will facilitate the discussion about global and local issues. "Wangari Maathai and the Green Belt Movement," which is about Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai, will showcase her accomplishments as a Kenyan environmental and political activist, as well as founder of the Green Belt Movement. Since Maathai founded the movement, over 40 million trees have been planted and over 30,000 women have been trained in forestry, food processing, beekeeping, and other sustainable, income-generating activities. Vandana Shiva is an Indian environmental activist and anti-globalization author. Her broad-ranging efforts have also focused on food production, women's rights, and water conservation. A portion of her talk from "A Festival of Dangerous Ideas 2013" win examine how unrestrained corporate growth leads to poverty. The "Guerilla Gardener from Los Angeles," Ron Finley suggests that "growing your own food is like printing your own money." Fin!ey is a designer, collector, community organizer and an inspirational gardener. Given California's drought crisis, films about droughts on the Loess Plateau in China and Ethiopia and how the Green Wall and Agroecology movements are providing solutions will inspire, along with excerpts from "Treading Water," a film by CSU-Chico professor Jesse Dizard about California's groundwater crisis. Selections from the award-winning film "Happy" will take the audience on a journey in search of what really makes people happy, combining real life stories of people from around the world with an exploration of the secrets behind our most valued emotion. The evening will conclude with Carrie Hawthorne's "Quincy, California - Livin' the Dream" to remind attendees what can be appreciated about this locale. Beaman said, "These films showcase inspiring stories of the human spirit restoring and building sustainability on the land, of the heart, in leadership, community, and economy." Event organizer Darla DeRuiter explains the inspiration behind the festival's name: "Michelle and I thought that 'Seed Film Fest' represented new growth on so many levels, and we hope our festival will explore those new beginnings for everyone who attends." Come prepared to be inspired, to think, and to question your assumptions. Free popcorn and cool beverages (courtesy of Quincy Natural Foods Coop) will be provided. The film festival is the third program in FRC's Sustainability,Action Team spring fiilm series.

Festival organizers said its silver anniversary celebrates the event's history and everyone who helped create and sustain the "family-friendly laidback northern California vibe High Sierra is known for." This year's lineup honors many of the artists who have been a part of the fabric of the festival over the years. Artists like Karl Denson, The Slip, Surprise Me Mr. Davis, Galactic, ALO, the Living Daylights, Dan Bern and many others to be announced have all played High Sierra spanning over three decades. Additions announced March 12 include Umphree's McGee, The John Butler Trio, The Word, Lake Street Dive, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers and many more. The High Sierra Music Festival began in Leland Meadows in 1991. It moved to Bear Valley in 1994, and was there through 1997 and again in 1999. Persistent snow accumulations prompted an urgent need to move the festival in 1998 and the fairgrounds in Quincy proved an ideal choice. High Sierra acknowledges and thanks the ongoing support the residents of Quincy and Plumas County give each and every year. p m m ~11 m m SENIOR MENU Monday, March 23 | Baked ziti with four cheeses, Caesar salad, | Brussels sprouts, pears. | Tuesday, March 24 Turkey enchiladas, green | salad, oranges and pineapple, spanish rice, | caramel pudding. m m Rill R m m m II Wednesday, March 25 Pot roast, carrots and red skin potatoes, green salad, whole grain roll.
