Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 17 aprile 2009

Toronto Saturday, May 2, 2009 – 7:00 pm  Al Green Theatre at Miles Nadal JCC – 750 Spadina Ave at Bloor. Planet in Focus promotes the use of film and video to frame and explore social and ecological focal points,  and act as a catalyst for awareness, discussion and action. The annual festival, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2009, is complemented by year round  programming with  hands-on video workshops for youth, the Cross-Canada  and International Touring  Program and other special events. Festival programs feature pre and post-screening discussions, panels,  workshops and networking events, designed to further engage with the films’ subjects, as well as foster  dialogue and community amongst audiences, filmmakers and broadcasters. Carlo Petrini Born in Bra, Italy in 1949, Carlo Petrini has profoundly articulated and re-shaped our contemporary  understanding of food, its production and its inter-relationship with the environment and our well-being.  He has shepherded, since the 1980’s, what has become known as the worldwide Slow Food movement  that is re-evaluating agriculture, food production, distribution, preparation and consumption methods,  placing food at the centre of human activity. Petrini is also the founder of the University of Gastronomic  Sciences in Pollenzo and Colorno in Italy and the author of Slow Food Nation: Why Our Food Should  Be Good, Clean, And Fair (2005). In 2004 he was named a ‘European Hero’ by Time Magazine; and  in January 2008, The Guardian named him as the sole Italian to appear on a list of  “50 People Who  Could Save the World”. In October 2008, Carlo Petrini was also awarded the Planet in Focus  International Eco Hero Award for his outstanding leadership and lasting contribution to environmental  awareness, action and change on the international stage.
