Baconfest - Planning film festival

The Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) Calgary Events Committee in partnership with the General Manager of Planning, Development & Assessment (Rollin Stanley), The Calgary Public Library and DIRTT Environmental Consulting are proud to present Baconfest - a planning documentary film festival.

This series of movies will explore a variety of aspects of City Building. The films are done by Ed Bacon, who is the only city planner to grace the cover of Time Magazine (and yes - he is the father of Hollywood Actor Kevin Bacon).

The movies run Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8pm (approx.) January 8, 15, 22 and 29; February 12, 19 and 26. There will be the movies and panel/group discussion.

These events are free - no registration required. For those of you are are planners with APPI looking for continuous professional learning credits, these events will qualify for structured learning units.

For details on the schedule and movies, check out the Baconfest Website.

Hahaha! There is a film called "Where Do Children Play? (57 mins)"

It reminds me of that NIMBY a couple years ago that wrote the comment in regarding the Pixel development:

WHERE WILL THE CHILDREN PLAY

Hope those of you who attended Baconfest enjoyed it! Roughly 300 for our first night - which was an amazing turn out. I'm sure I saw some of you; but since I was helping to organize and I had to do the introductions and then head to a community meeting I wasn't able to say hi.

Lots more movies (and Bacon) to come - see you on night 2. Yes, if you missed it, we did have cured bacon from Charcut and it will be available every night of the festival, as will the sandwiches and snacks!

Unfortunately, the most appropriate one for your avatar, Where Do The Children Play? doesn't seem to be online.

Due to popular demand, we've extended Baconfest one more week.
Come celebrate what has been an incredibly successful public engagement (1500 total attendance, typically 200 a night (70% being members of the public)).

Joining Planning General Manager, Rollin Stanley, will be Dan Burden, Executive Director of the Walkable & Liveable Communities Institute, and Tamara Lee from the citizen-led Bow to Bluff Placemaking Initiative.

Come listen and talk about building a great Calgary and enjoy our last night of Baconfest! Pictures of past evenings on our website (www.calgary.ca/baconfest).

The doors open at 5:30 and there will be refreshments provided. Following the main event, from 8 to 9 there will be a mixer where other groups related to Affordable Housing will be present on the main floor of the library to talk and engage with in a social setting.

This event is free for the public and is presented in partnership with the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (Calgary Events Committee), Attainable Homes Calgary, The City of Calgary and of course the Calgary Public Library.
