PolyCultures Film Fests

I was fortunate enough to present PolyCultures at three notable film festivals:

  • Official Selection of the 8th Annual Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Nevada City, California in January 2010

    • Spoke & fielded questions at 2 screenings

    • This is the largest environmental film festival in the U.S.

  • Official Selection of the 33rd Annual Cleveland International Film Festival in March 2009

    • Featured Selection in the "It's Easy Being Green" & "Local Heroes" series

    • Number of theaters screening it doubled due to audience demand - over 1000 were estimated to have seen it during the fest, which was it's official debut

    • Joined Director Tom Kondilas & others behind the project for a well-attended panel discussion following the initial screening

  • Official Selection at the 13th Annual Community Food Security Coalition conference in Des Moines, Iowa in October 2009

    • Spoke & fielded questions at the screening, where the PBS cut was officially premiered

    • This is the largest conference & most established on the social justice issues surrounding the U.S. food system

While not a film festival per se, one of PolyCultures' highest-profile screenings occurred when PBS/WVIZ aired the 53:30 version just before PBS's national premiere of Food Inc. to commemorate Earth Day in April 2010. It screened several more times on WVIZ and other PBS affiliates in the region.

Here are some of the other film fests that have featured PolyCultures:
