The food movement is a wide collection of individuals, organizations and communities working toward a food system in which everyone has access to affordable, healthy food that is produced, processed and served equitably and sustainably.

To celebrate the diversity of the growing food justice movement, Food First/Institute for Food and Development Policy and the California Food and Justice Coalition announce the inaugural Food Justice Film Festival, to be held on Friday, November 4th in Oakland, CA.

The Food Justice Film Festival will feature documentary works by filmmakers, media activists, and food justice advocates on a variety of issues, including food justice, food sovereignty, and localized agriculture. Filmmakers will be on hand to introduce their work and lead discussions on the roles media can play in supporting community building, agricultural sustainability and healthy food.

The Food Justice Film Festival is a program of “Food Justice: Honoring Our Roots, Growing the Movement”, the 15th Annual Conference of the Community Food Security Coalition. This annual conference brings people together to shape the future of the food justice movement.

A donation of $10 is suggested, but no one will be turned down due to lack of funds.

RSVP. Space is limited.
