Win Double Passes to The Gateway Bug Film Screening (and try edible insect canapés too!)

Thanks to our friends at the The Gateway Bug feature documentary, we’re giving readers a chance to win 2 x double passes to attend the Melbourne film screening of this award-winning sustainable food doco on Tuesday February 19 at 7:00pm at Cinema Nova in Carlton.

The screening will be accompanied by edible insect canapes (sorry vegetarians and vegans!) and a Q&A panel moderated by Tamara Dimattina of The New Joneses and featuring the filmmakers Brooklyn based Aussie filmmaker Johanna B. Kelly and New York-based filmmaker and photographer Cameron Marshad, sustainability-focussed chef Ben McMenamin (of the Social Food Project) and visiting edible insect American entrepreneur Kevin Bacchuber (US).

Over 2 billion people eat insects for protein. The documentary follows the rise and fall of edible insect start-ups in America, documents the shifting American landscapes of regulation, diet and agriculture from the front lines of climate-affected communities like Flint MI and Youngstown OH; exposes the West’s broken food system as it relates to climate change while offering solutions on how to fix the problem.

Film Festival ‘Green Spark Award’, ‘Best Environmental Documentary’ at Melbourne Documentary Film Fest, Impact DOCS ‘Award of Excellence’, Bonita Springs Int. Film Fest ‘Audience Award’ and ‘Special Menzione’ at Milano International Film Festival Awards.
