Pot Likker Film Festival — Oxford

The Southern Foodways Alliance will hold its Pot Likker Film Festival on Friday, August 22, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The Powerhouse in Oxford, MS.

The Squad attended last year’s festival in Houston. Believe me, Pot Likker is far more than a bunch of folks sitting in a dark room watching movies.

Here is the SFA’s info:

EATS: Potlikker Shots from Mama Jo’s of Oxford. And three catfish riffs, from across the South:

Catawba River Salt and Pepper Catfish, Dan Huntley of the Carolinas
Arkansas Rice-Crusted Catfish, Lee Richardson of Little Rock, Arkansas
Thin-Shaved Catfish, the Ladies of Middendorf’s of Manchac, Louisiana

FILMS: King Corn, that muckraking take on our nation’s newfangled grain addiction. Plus an homage to muscadine wine. And Greek hotdogs. And a short Joe York biopic, on Lynn Hewlett of Taylor Grocery fame. And more.

MUSIC: Dent May DJ’s the Blount Box, a collection of food songs compiled by Roy Blount, Jr.

DRINKS: Expect Jack Daniel’s Tea Punch and more from Lazy Magnolia.

ADMISSION by advance reservation, is a measly $35.
