6:15-7:45 Vegucated Screening and Chat with the Filmmaker and Cast
Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers from different backgrounds who, for six weeks, adopt a vegan diet and a whole new way of thinking about food.
7:45-8:05 Jenny Brown
Jenny Brown is the Co-Founder and Director of the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary—a not-for-profit organization and farm animal shelter located in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Jenny is an animal rights activist who previously worked as a Television Producer until 2002 when she went undercover in Texas to film farmed animal abuse. That experience led her to dedicate her life to helping farm animals and raising awareness of their plight. Jenny’s story and the work of her sanctuary has been featured in the New York Times, Cosmopolitan Magazine, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine, New York Daily News, NPR’s Weekend America and more. You can read more about her and the sanctuary at www.WoodstockSanctuary.org

Rising from the Brooklyn underground, Dynasty Electric gets the party moving with their super-charged mix of electronic music, rock, and hip-hop. Their latest album co-produced with David Maurice, DJ Logic, and Ski Beatz is due out this spring on NoShame. Lead vocalist, thereminist Jenny Electrik and mc, guitarist, producer Seth Misterka are both vegetarian (although they once toured with The Meat Puppets). www.dynastyelectric.net
