2nd Annual San Francisco Food & Farm Film Festival

We are so thrilled to bring you these amazing films that celebrate food and farming while challenging us to deeply explore our food system.  

This year we have three special events in addition to the films: our opening night celebration at Root Division, a closing party at Dandelion Chocolate, and a Saturday brunch at 18 Reasons featuring "Goats & Goatees." Get your tickets today and see you at the Roxie...

Savory Shorts

Three short films explore sustainable shrimp farming, the mobile world of taco trucks, and nose to tail cooking – with coconuts.

FILMS

Coconut Nose to Tail (Daniel Kline, 2013, 4 minutes)

No part of the coconut goes to waste in this entertaining short. 

Lonche (Claire Weissbluth, 2013, 20 minutes)

Travel California’s backroads with two very different taco trucks: one serving office workers in Silicon Valley, the other serving lettuce pickers in Salinas Valley.

Raising Shrimp (Crystal Sanders, 2014, 60 minutes)

Shrimp is our most popular seafood item (we consume a billion pounds a year). But 90% of our shrimp is imported, and most of that is farmed, not wild caught. Filmmaker Ted Caplow and scientist Andy Danylchuk search for a seafood we can all believe in. Ultimately, they find hope in a most unlikely place, as their journey makes a sharp turn into modern agricultural science.
