We are running a fully stocked bar throughout the one day film Harvest Film Festival organised by Lower Hewood Farm, and very we're happy to be near the screening of 'The Gleaners and I' which we've watched many times.
Harvest Film Festival is a celebration and critical exploration of farming, food, and land, through the medium of film. This annual event, which builds on the success of the 2014 Food and Farming Film Festival, is a day of screenings, discussions and communal eating.
Harvest Film Festival opened at Lower Hewood Farm, an organic smallholding in West Dorset, and will now tour to Open School East, a free artist study programme based in Hackney, London, where there will also be a market of food, books and other produce.

The Harvest Film Festival at Open School East begins with an afternoon of documentaries and short films exploring the themes of land use, agroecology and food production. At 5pm a screening will be held of the winners and shortlisted films in the Harvest Short Film Competition, the result of an open call to filmmakers to submit short films relating to the themes. The event culminates with a screening of Manufactured Landscapes, which follows photographer Edward Burtynsky on his travels through epic industrialised landscapes. There will be an indoor market of food, drink and information relating to small-scale agriculture. This is a free event and all are welcome. Harvest Film Festival is curated by Maria Benjamin and is part of Lower Hewood Farm’s ongoing programme of arts events and residencies, bringing art and agriculture together.
