Harvest Film Festival 2017

Lower Hewood Farm and London venue TBC


Lower Hewood Farm is delighted to announce that we are collaborating with Common Ground on the Harvest Film Festival this year. Adrian Cooper (Common Ground) and Alexa de Ferranti (Lower Hewood Farm) will be co-curating the festival programme and it is an honour for us to be working with an environmental charity that is both inspiring and so aligned with the aims of the festival.

Harvest Film Festival is a celebration and critical exploration of farming, food and land, through the medium of film. The festival builds on the success of the 2014 Food and Farming Film Festival and the 2015 Harvest Film Festival. It is a day of screenings, conversations and communal eating, taking place at Lower Hewood Farm in late October. It will then tour to a venue in London (TBC) in November.

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 2017 Harvest Short Film Competition, the result of an open call to filmmakers to submit films, under 15 minutes, relating to the festival themes. The prize-giving for the winning films will take place at Lower Hewood Farm, followed by a harvest supper to celebrate the event.
