Are you passionate about food justice and films? So are we. The Social Justice Film Festival is pleased to announce we will be sponsoring a special Food Justice Film Screening on October 16 and 17, 2015 in partnership with Columbia Legal Services—and we want to see YOUR films!
Potential topics include farmworker justice, agribusiness, GMO labeling, food deserts, the industrial food system, food insecurity, sustainable farming (organic, permaculture), animal rights, hunger and poverty, urban farming, water, WTO and global food systems, the Green Revolution, the food/health connection, food sovereignty, school food programs, and more. The event will take place at University Christian Church in Seattle’s University District; details will be posted soon.
Our call for submissions is live. We invite producers and directors of all new films, narrative and documentary, feature and short, that focus on the array of food justice issues to submit your film to this special festival screening event at filmfreeway.com or withoutabox.com by June 1 (regular deadline) or July 1 (late deadline). Contact us at anne@socialjusticefilmfestival if you have any questions.
The next full Social Justice Film Festival will be in 2016—stay tuned for more announcements in coming months.
Hope to see you in October,
