From Fencerows to Foodsheds - Fort Wayne Premiere and Opening Reception 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM Saturday, August 28th
Showtimes at 6:00 PM & 8:00 PM
At the intersection of America’s Corn Belt and Rust Belt, Indiana has over 58,000 farms. Most of the region’s farmers plant corn and soybeans fencerow to fencerow with impressive harvests, yet the state imports an estimated 90% of its food while confronting significant hunger and health issues. Just as a region’s watershed provides residents with the water they drink, so a region’s foodshed supplies their food.
The film chronicles the story of two Indiana communities as they each work to rebuild their local foodsheds, as a way to care for their soil, strengthen their communities, and supply all their residents with fresh, healthy food. Through engaging interviews with farmers, chefs, marketers, dieticians, policy makers and consumers, the film illustrates how by working together they are revitalizing their local food systems to enhance their community’s health, resilience and quality of life.
FROM FENCEROEWS TO FOODSHEDS captures the inspiring story of how these communities are reimaging their foodsheds and the quiet revolution that is taking place in the way their food travels from the topsoil to the table.
Cinema Center will be hosting two screenings at 6 & 8 p.m., as part of Arts United's Taste of the Arts Festival.

In an effort to make our programming accessible to all audiences, Cinema Center is excited and proud to launch Subtitled Sundays! On the third Sunday of every month, Cinema Center will screen one of our regularly scheduled, full-run films with the captioning enabled. Not only will this benefit the deaf and hard of hearing, but it will help anyone who sometimes has a little trouble discerning dialogue when multiple characters speak, or who miss what is said in very quiet moments.
The next Subtitled Sunday film will be Infinitely Polar Bear on September 20th!
Be sure to check Our Schedule for Subtitled Sunday movie selections and show times. Regular pricing applies. At Cinema Center, we truly believe everyone in this great community should have a chance to enjoy the best independent, documentary, and foreign films. It is one of the many reasons why Film feels different here.
NSFW is the stuff you weren’t supposed to watch as a kid. It’s the stuff you heard someone describe and it sounded so absurd it couldn’t possibly be real. It’s the place where you can see Rowdy Roddy Piper one night and Jack Nicholson the next. Where people in the high-brow got their start in the low-brow. It’s Black & White, Smell-o-Vision, Red, Green, or Purple Tinted, and Technicolor. From Italy, Korea, the UK, North America, Japan. Dubbed, Subtitled, or Barely Audible. This is the Summit City’s showcase of thrillers, horror-shows, comedies, sci-fi head trips, the overshadowed flicks from burgeoning film titans, and the triumphs of the auteurs of sleaze. Welcome to, “Not Safe Fort Wayne”, bringing cult classics to the three rivers!
Stay Tuned to our Coming Attractions page for more info on our next NSFW screening!
