Special LIVE Social Screening for Food Day Oct 24 6 PM PST
Come meet and talk to Food Rebel Abeni Ramsey and the creators of Food Forward in a special LIVE online social screening in celebration of Food Day Wednesday, October 24.
One of the stars from the episode, Abeni Ramsey-Masey, a single mother-turned urban farmer in Oakland, CA. will be joined by the show’s producers Greg Roden and Stett Holbrook to answer your questions and share more about urban ag around the country and future episodes of Food Forward.
What exactly is a “social screening?” you may ask. It’s a way to watch a TV show using a special online video player with real-time interaction. This player will run the episode along with a “chat window” to the side of it that displays the conversation. You’ll be able to see your questions, the panelist’s answers and enter a dialogue with other fans of Food Forward. There will also be icons that you can click on to express how you feel about the content the show itself as it plays.
All you need to do is go to:
1. Make sure you are using the most current version of your favorite browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer
2. Check that you are using the current version of the Flash Player.
3. Run a test to make sure OVEE works properly on your computer.
This special social screening is hosted by the Independent Television Service (ITVS) and PBS. ITVS funds, presents, and promotes award-winning documentaries and dramas on public television and cable, innovative new media projects on the Web, and the Emmy Award-winning weekly series Independent Lens Monday nights at 10:00 PM on PBS.
Now let’s watch together and chat! And please tell your friends to join us.
