Film & Discussion: Edible City
About Edible City: Grow the Revolution
Edible City: Grow the Revolution is a fun, fast-paced, feature-length documentary journey through the local Good Food movement that’s taking root in the San Francisco Bay Area, across the nation and around the world.
Documenting a broad spectrum of activists, organizations and inspired citizens, Edible City shows how everyone can get involved in transforming our food system.
Edible City introduces a diverse cast of extraordinary and eccentric characters who are challenging the paradigm of our broken food system. The movie digs deep into their unique perspectives and transformative work– from edible education to grassroots activism to building local economies— finding hopeful solutions to monumental problems.
Inspirational, down-to-earth and a little bit quirky, Edible City captures the spirit of a movement that’s making real change and doing something truly revolutionary: growing the model for a healthy, sustainable local food system that’s socially just, environmentally sound, and economically resilient.
The runtime of the film is 70 minutes. The filmmakers are encouraging viewers to watch the film for free online at ediblecity.net, and to organize screenings in their communities to learn about solutions for food access, physical health, local ownership and growing truly green economies. Edible City has proudly been a grassroots effort since day one, and is now being distributed on a gift economy/donation-based distribution model.
