Whole Foods Market® Do Something Reel Film Festival Goes Online

Stocks in this article: WFM

AUSTIN, Texas, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Whole Foods Market, America's healthiest grocery store, is taking its annual Do Something Reel Film Festival online this year. The film festival is an ongoing collection of provocative films about food and environmental issues that can be purchased online at www.dosomethingreel.com and streamed for a limited time.

Beginning in April, Whole Foods Market will stream a different film each month with proceeds helping to fund the 2012 Whole Foods Market/AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs Festival filmmaker grants.  

The festival opens April 22, with a live screening of "The Apple Pushers," followed by a panel discussion with the film's writer and director, Mary Mazzio; executive producer, Laurie Tisch; and celebrity chef, food policy advocate and founder of Wholesome Wave, Michel Nischan. Debi Mazar, "Entourage" and Cooking Channel's "Extra Virgin" star, will host the discussion. The event will take place at Alamo Drafthouse's Slaughter Lane Theater in Whole Foods Market's hometown of Austin. Additionally, theaters in Boston, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Francisco will host simultaneous screenings and will stream the panel discussion. The panel discussion will also be live streamed for free to online viewers. "The Apple Pushers" can be viewed online from April 22-30.

"The Apple Pushers," narrated by Academy Award nominee Edward Norton, and underwritten by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, follows five immigrant street-cart vendors who are offering fruits and vegetables in New York neighborhoods where fresh produce isn't widely available. The vendors, who take part in a unique urban experiment called The NYC Green Cart Initiative, personify what it means to be an American entrepreneur, and their stories shed new light on the nation's food crisis and skyrocketing obesity rates.

"The film chronicles first-generation immigrant micro-entrepreneurs who are infusing low income communities with fresh fruits and vegetables," said Mazzio. "Whole Foods Market's emphasis on providing access to healthy and nutritious foods makes them an ideal partner in helping us to expand the message of the film."
