Forks over Knives screening a resounding success

Last night Liberation BC presented a free screening of Forks over Knives to a packed room of 300 people. The screening was co-sponsored by the Vancouver Public Library.

Robert Cheeke flew up from the US to introduce the film and answer questions after.

For those who missed this screening, the film will be in theatres in late March or early April. Our screening is one of the last of the pre-screenings around North America. Be sure to go see it in the theatre when it comes out. A strong showing at the box office will mean getting the film into more theatres in more cities around the country.

Screenings of films like this are an important way to reach many people with information that can change behaviours. Films are one of the most powerful tools that activists have available.

We are working on planning future screenings of other films. Are there any films that you would like to see screened?

Is it possible to have this film screened again before March? Just wondering, although March is coming soon up, too. I’m glad it will be available in Vancouver then but I wonder in what theatres.

That first shot of the crowd on the stairs is AMAZING!

I think there should be a screening of Food Inc as there are still a lot of people out there that have not seen it. Also Bold Native would be excellent!
