It’s been 3 years since I released my short film the Growing Food Project (2013), and as this year is coming to a close, I’m feeling quite reflective thinking about how things have changed in the last few years… and how many more local food projects have sprung up around Melbourne since this little film was made.
This 15-minute film documents Melbourne’s local food movement and community food initiatives, where people come together to build local, fair and sustainable food systems. I feel honoured that most of the people featured in the film & others who have worked behind the scenes are good friends of mine. To learn more about the film check out this blog post from the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).
The film had a great run screening nationally & internationally. And I’m really humbled by the feedback I received and the number of emails telling me that since watching this little film, some people felt inspired to start a garden in their homes or their neighbourhoods.
It makes my heart smile knowing that the art I create resonates.
The film has been offline for a bit, while screening at international film festivals. But the time has come to share it with you again… So click here to watch it.
In loving memory of my dear friend & teacher, Glenda M Lindsay Jan 23 1954 – Jan 15 2017.
