Local and real foods short film fest Sunday at FilmScene

Real Food Films contest finalists

FilmScene — Sunday, June 5, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Finalists from the 2016 Real Foods Films Contest, chosen from 160 entries and all under four minutes, will be screened on Sunday at FilmScene in Iowa City.

The program, A Real Food For All Pop-Up Film Festival, presented by Local Foods Connection (LCF), features 45 minutes of short films focused on food and farming followed by a community dialogue about local farming and food accessibility.

All films were picked as finalists in the 2016 Real Foods Films Contest, produced by Real Food Media, a collaborative project directed by author and food educator Anna Lappé. A range of works, including video poems, advocacy and documentaries, were selected from 160 entries for this touring collection of food films.
