After two weeks of previewing and voting — with a total of 4.7 million social media impressions worldwide — the audience has spoken. Documentary Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story wins the coveted screening at the BC Spotlight Awards + Gala on October 4th. Filmmakers Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustemeyer attempt to live only on discarded food for six months. It sounds a bit like Morgan Spurlock’s Supersize Me experiment of eating only at McDonald’s, except this will show not our obsession with fast food, but how much food we waste as a society — throwing away nearly half in the trash.

Regular screenings – September 28th at 6:30 pm at Rio Theatre/September 30th at 10:30 am at SFU Woodwards/October 6th at 1:30 pm at Vancouver Playhouse.
