Youth day screening: Truck farm
Truck Farm tells the story of a new generation of quirky urban farmers. Viewers are trucked across New York to see the city’s funkiest urban farms, and to find out if America’s largest city can learn to feed itself. Blending serious exposition with serious silliness, Truck Farm entreats viewers to ponder the future of urban farming, and to consider whether sustainability needs a dose of whimsy to be truly sustainable. Featuring chef Dan Barber, nutritionist Marion Nestle, explorer Henry Hudson and a very lonely seagull. With musical narration by The Fishermen Three. Run time:

Speaker PanelAnthony Sedlak discovered his love of food at the age of 13 when he took a shift in a café atop Grouse Mountain ski resort in Vancouver, Canada. Inspired to complete a Culinary Arts program and a four-year apprenticeship, he became a leader in Grouse Mountain’s flagship dining room, The Observatory, by age 19. Anthony eventually went to Europe, working his way up to executive sous-chef at La Trompette, a Michelin Star restaurant in London. In 2006, he represented Canada at the Hans Bueschken World Junior Chef Challenge in New Zealand, returning home with silver. The same year, he competed in and won Food Network’s Superstar Chef Challenge. He hosted four seasons of the series The Main, with his cookbook based on the program becoming a national bestseller.
Currently, Anthony is a partner in BASK, a company involved in restaurant consulting and catering. He lives in North Vancouver, B.C and is passionate about teaching young people about healthy eating, cooking, and living.
