Kings of Pastry -- Movie
Imagine a scene never before witnessed: Sixteen French
pastry chefs gathered in Lyon for three intense days of
mixing, piping and sculpting everything from delicate
chocolates to six-foot sugar sculptures in hopes of
being declared by President Nicolas Sarkozy one of the
best. This is the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de
France competition (Best Craftsmen in France). The
blue, white and red striped collar worn on the jackets
of the winners is more than the ultimate recognition
for every pastry chef -- it is a dream and an
obsession. The finalists, France’s culinary elite, risk
their reputations as well as sacrifice family and
finances in pursuit of this lifelong distinction of
excellence. Similar to the Olympics, the three-day
contest takes place every four years and it requires
that the chefs not only have extraordinary skill and
nerves of steel, but also a lot of luck.
Filmmakers D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus secured
exclusive access to shoot this epic, never-before-
filmed test of France’s finest artisans.

Open Video Conference, Oct 1-2 2010
On both days of the Open Video Conference, the
discussion around shared culture and peer-to-peer
distribution will continue into the evening with the
Shared Films Festival.
The Shared Film Festival is a showcase for the emerging
world of free-to-share films. We’re teaming with our
friends at BitTorrent, hand-picking notable films from
creators who are experimenting with alternative
business models and distribution methods.
Each night following OVC, we’ll screen a short film, a
feature length production, and then sit down to a
discussion with the filmmakers, learning about the
stories behind the films, their production experiences
and business strategies. Can you make a living by
giving it away?
The Shared Film Festival is for both creators and
audiences, and it’s free to all attendees of the Open
Video Conference. It’s also open to the public-invite
Portside aims to provide material of interest
to people on the left that will help them to
interpret the world and to change it.
