AUSTIN, Texas — AMC Theatres, Kansas City, Mo., will be hosting Whole Foods Market’s “Do Something Reel Film Festival” in celebration of Earth Month in April.
The festival launched April 1 and will travel to theaters in 70 cities across the United States this month, including five AMC theaters: AMC Rainbow Promenade 10 (Las Vegas); AMC Plymouth Meeting 12 (Philadelphia); AMC Rio Cinemas 18 (Washington); AMC Cupertino Square 16 (San Francisco); and AMC Rolling Hills 20 (Los Angeles). A different film will be shown each night at 6:30 p.m. local time, with a double feature on Earth Day, April 22, at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The six films chosen for the inaugural festival, which focus on food and environmental issues include: Bag It!, Lunch Line, On Coal River, Planeat, Urban Roots, and Vanishing of the Bees.
A portion of all tickets sales from the film festival will go towards a film production and development grant that will encourage filmmakers to continue making stories about the environment and the choices consumers make. The festival is presented in association with Applegate Farms and RiceSelect, with additional support from EVOL Burritos, Food Should Taste Good and Siggi’s.
