Directed by Academy Award nominated Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, this film aims to address the myths and present the facts about a very controversial part of our food system . The film will be immediately followed by an expert panel discussion.

"With a soft tone, respectful to opponents but insistent on the data, “Food Evolution” posits an inconvenient truth for organic boosters to swallow: In a world desperate for safe, sustainable food, G.M.O.s may well be a force for good." - The New York Times

The Cambridge Food Security Forum was launched in 2015 by PhD students and young researchers at the University of Cambridge. It aims to promote discussion amongst researchers, community groups and all who are interested in achieving a sustainable food system.
