Harvest Film Festival is a celebration and critical exploration of farming, food and land, through the medium of film. This annual event, which builds on the success of the 2014 Food and Farming Film Festival, is a day of screenings, discussions and communal eating. The event will open at Lower Hewood Farm, an organic smallholding in West Dorset, and will then tour to Open School East, a free artist study programme based in Hackney, London, where there will be also be a market of food, books and other produce.

The daylong festival programme is a curated selection of feature films, documentaries and other moving image material exploring the themes of land use, agroecology and food production.  Included in the programme will be a shortlisted selection of competition entries for the Harvest Short Film Competition, the result of an open call to filmmakers to submit short films relating to the themes. The prize-giving for the winning films will take place at Lower Hewood Farm on October 10th, followed by a harvest supper to celebrate the event.

Harvest Film Festival is curated by Maria Benjamin and is part of Lower Hewood Farm’s ongoing programme of arts events and residencies, bringing art and agriculture together.
