Local Food Roots

Synopsis: This inspiring documentary chronicles the emergence of an innovative local food movement from a handful of pioneers battling against the odds in the early 90s to the diverse UK-wide movement of today. From the first organic box schemes to feeding cities and local food culture, we explore the diversity, motivations, challenges and opportunities and what this might mean for our future.

Documentary / 35 minutes / UK

This film is an inspirational immersion in local food culture, with stories that cover the urban, rural, large and small scales.  It brings together very skilfully the story so far of local food while also celebrating what has been achieved. -Transition Network

Thought for Food: The Documentary

Synopsis: Thought for Food provides an inspirational glimpse into the motivations, ideas and impact of the next generation of innovators for food security. Our TFF film crew crisscrossed the globe to meet the 2013 competition’s five finalist teams, hailing from Kenya, India, USA and the Netherlands, and captured them in action changing the world. We hope you will be inspired, will learn something new and will debate and topic and ideas you see.
