Crowdfund a Local Documentary: Melbourne’s Growing Food Project
Posted in Seeking by Kate Archdeacon on April 11th, 2013
The Growing Food Project is a short documentary exploring some of Melbourne’s urban agriculture practices and community food projects, where people are coming together to build local, fair and sustainable food systems.
There is a thriving energy of empowered local communities responding to food access and sustainability issues that aim to strengthen the way we produce and distribute local food. Community food projects improve the way we eat, reconnect us with nature, build relationships between neighbours and enhance our food culture.
The Growing Food Project is a documentary exploring some of Melbourne’s urban agriculture practices and alternative food systems, particularly those existing in the city’s inner north. By documenting and telling these amazing stories, this short film will capture the possibilities and practical solutions that lie in people’s hands & strengthen our local food system.
Our story so far… We have been filming at various community gardens and local food initiatives since Nov. 2012 and we now have a big job of editing ahead! Money raised from this campaign will go towards post-production and help us pay someone do a brilliant job at it.
Costs include: a professional editor, grading, sound design, sound mixing etc.
So far this project has been a labour of love by a team of committed volunteers, without any funding at all. However, we need your help to get the film out there!
