Today, 91% of our fish is imported and the market is flooded with billion tons of imported seafood. Fish & Men exposes the high cost of cheap fish in the modern seafood economy, and the forces threatening local fishing communities and public health, by revealing how our choices as consumers drive the global seafood trade.

About The Scotiabank Big Picture Program

Every year Devour! invites students from regional schools to come to Devour! to appreciate the cultural experience of attending a film festival while seeing important films related to health and community. This year will be a little different with COVID restrictions in place…we will be streaming to classrooms this time around with this year’s theme of CLIMATE CHANGE. How does climate change affect food and food production, our daily lives, our economies and more? These powerful documentaries will be screened in person with socially distanced, regulated seating at the Al Whittle theatre, but also available online for schools and teachers to access in class ($100 screening fee per class with accompanying learning modules developed by Nourish NS) or streamed for $10 for children learning at home.

Ticket Price: $10 in-theatre (limited capacity)

Teachers & Schools take note: Book your $100 Virtual Class Booking, includes curriculum guide and the ability to stream into your classroom or for at home support. Recommended Ages 14+. Purchase here.
