Food for Thought Film Series

The Food for Thought Film Series is designed to offer education through entertainment. We bring both documentaries and feature films to town on a number of issues related to the Co-op’s mission. Films are shown at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in downtown Moscow February - April and September - November with occasional additional screenings. We are excited to share that we have partnered with the University of Idaho Sustainability Center to make every film free for everyone! In addition, we may partner with additional community organizations and businesses that share interests in the subject matter of a particular film.

Born in the California Gold Rush, Nevada City was once the scene of some of the most destructive environmental practices on earth.  By the 1960s, the town was a backwater, its extractive industries dying.  Then it was discovered by the “back to the land movement.”  It was a second gold rush but with a different idea of gold based on nature, community and a sense of place. The Yuba River brought conflicting factions of the community together while different ideas about the meaning of wealth have led to changes in local food production, education, arts, music and a commitment to building community. Redefining Prosperity: The Gold Rushes of Nevada City includes two dozen of Nevada City’s most active citizens and their stories.
