Connections: Arts Friday - Greentopia Film Festival; Changes in the South Wedge

Food and wine make great pairings but what about food and film? That’s the opening event for the Greentopia Film Festival at Good Luck Restaurant. Four short films will be paired with four courses. What can we expect from this event and the festival? We sit down with Greentopia co-founder Michael Philipson and Director of Greentopia Film Linda Maroney.

In the second part of the show we talk to Jeese Knoth, community engagement specialist for the South Wedge Planning Committee to tell us about a part of the city that has undergone much change in recent years.
