Cinema Politica UofT is back and is now an initiative of Harvest Noon (Toronto Sustainable Food Co-op)!
Our film screenings aim to engage co-op, campus and community members in critical issues surrounding equity, direct action, environmental justice and more. We screen films that explore stories of oppression and resistance that are often excluded from the mainstream media and that challenge conventional narratives. We also think it’s important to link screenings to local issues, discuss how the content of the film relates to our own experiences and what action we can take collectively.
Over the years, the Cinema Politica UofT local has received support from the Ontario Public Interest Research Group – Toronto (OPIRG Toronto), the University of Toronto Graduate Students’ Union (UTGSU), the Association of Part Time Undergraduate Students (APUS) and the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU).
Harvest Noon is an autonomous largely volunteer-run café offering a variety of affordable, locally-sourced, fair trade, and organic vegan & vegetarian food to UofT students and the broader community. We opened on the second floor of the Graduate Students’ Union building in January 2012 and are a project of the Toronto Sustainable Food Co-operative. (TSFC was itself founded only a year earlier in 2011 by members of the former student group Hot Yam! and other community members). Harvest Noon works to fulfill TSFC’s mandate through our food; community involvement; volunteer led projects; educational and skills-based workshops, events and socials from a broad social justice and environmental justice mandate; and via our participatory co-operative structure.
By building relationships, providing spaces for dialogue, and skill-building, we provide opportunities and support for people to work together for social change in the food system and beyond!
