We screen films on food and sustainability issues, followed by a chance to join in a friendly conversation on the topics raised.
PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE - we have moved to the Community Centre in the basement of the Union Church, on the corner of Weston Park and Ferme Park Road, N8 9PX. Screenings take place on the last Wednesday of every other month.

Bus W3 passes by 41 and 91 nearby.
Next event is to celebrate Fair Trade Fortnight.
We love bananas – in fact they’re our favourite fruit - in the UK alone we eat over five billion a year.
In the last 10 years, the UK supermarket sector has almost halved the shelf price of loose bananas while the cost of producing them has doubled, trapping many of the farmers and workers who grow them in a cycle of poverty.
Does that sound fair to you?
In the developing world, bananas rank behind rice, wheat and corn as the most important staple food crops. Filmed in Canada, the United States, Honduras and France, Banana Split explores the North/South split between Canadian consumers and the people whose lives revolve around the "curvaceous fruit from the herbaceous plant."
Ben Hunt (Fairtrade Haringey) will give an overview of the Fair Trade movement, how it applies to us locally and how we can support it.
After another short film Alexis, a banana producer from Colombia, will give a short talk about what he does and answer any questions.
