Fantastic Fungi is a brilliant shift in consciousness film that takes the audience on a journey into the Fungi Kingdom, a harmonious, interconnected world beneath our feet which serves as the ultimate life blueprint to improve our world above ground. Simultaneously, the film takes us above ground to experience the stories of leading mycologists and mushroom enthusiasts who have tapped into the fungi kingdom for many beneficial reasons.
There is a "mycelial" network of organizations and individuals who are passionate about the film, the subject matter, and the cast as well as a groundswell of media covering the mushroom world so the timing could not be better to release the film. We will have fantastic social media and grassroots support for the release.
Followed by a Q&A led by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Ohio Mushroom Society. Q&A hosts include Deb Shankland, Chair; Walt Sturgeon, former chair and now the "Mushroom Guru” and members Pauline & Peter Munk of the Ohio Mushroom Society.

The aim for this year’s conference is to generate a space for discussion and dialogue regarding Ohio college students who are derailed by poverty or near-poverty. We hope these conversations will help more college students realize their ambitions, by providing information and resources which will enable colleges in our region to better support their students.
