For some, food is merely fuel, but, in fact, food is much more than that.
Food is culture, history, art, entertainment. Food is economy; it is nature;
it is science; it is life. Food fuels much more than our bodies; it fuels our
lives, our thoughts, our stories, our films.
WCI’s annual student-centered, public humanities Film Festival and
Lecture Series offers a curated selection of culturally and thematically
diverse films, celebrations, lectures and keynote addresses that foster
critical inquiry into real world concerns through world-class scholarship,
community partnerships, and experiental education.
Throughout the Festival weekend, the lectures, films, and community
events will explore the essential role of our festival theme, food in our
cultures, provoking the discussion of topics as diverse and significant as
individual and group identity, immigration, history, war, art, expression,
