REAL FOOD FILMS 2017 PROGRAMMING

Since Real Food Media launched the Real Food Films Contest in 2013, we've seen 440 film submissions from 34 states and 31 countries. The incredible people you see on this page: the fantastic judges, advisors, media partners, school ambassadors, and allies - have built this project with us from day one. In three years, we've sparked more than 350 events around the world and thousands of connections online — and we have heard one question loud and clear:


HOW CAN I TAKE ACTION?


The more than 70 films we have featured have inspired people around the world to learn more about critical issues at the heart of our food system and to get active in new ways to build the food system we need.

This year, Real Food Films is responding to this call. Our team is thrilled to announce that this year’s Real Food Films programming will focus on providing organizing toolkits for deeper learning and engagement around three key areas:


TAKING ON BIG SODA: PUBLIC POLICIES FOR PUBLIC HEALTH


BUILDING POWER WITH FOOD WORKERS


TACKLING CLIMATE CHANGE THROUGH FOOD


Drawing from the films in the Real Food Films library, we're launching organizing toolkits this summer for communities to take action on these issues. We're also opening a CALL FOR ENTRIES through April 1 for films that feature people, places, and stories that put a spotlight on this year's themes. If you are interested in submitting your work, please do!
