  • Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet.
  • Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
  • Enjoy an optional dinner featuring a locally foraged soup, salad, and rustic bread provided by Chef Ian Knauer of The Farm Cooking School. Stay after the film for a post-film panel featuring Dan Lipow, Malaika Spencer, and Ben Walmer. See bios below.
