FOOD CHAINS WINS GLOBAL IMPACT AWARD

We are so thrilled to announce that FOOD CHAINS won the prestigious DOC IMPACT AWARD from the BritDoc Foundation this year! 

We couldn’t have achieved this without the support and dedication of each and every one of you.

From our theatrical launch in November 2014 onward, we bravely marched together with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in their fight against Publix, Wendy’s and Kroger; we hosted discussions on campuses and with Fair Food Program signatories like Bon Appetit Management Corporation, Whole Foods and Compass Group; we raised money and our voices for farmworker rights; we flexed our buying power – and we saw the effect this had on companies like Giant and Stop and Shop.

“Food Chains” Theatrical Release Was a Smash Hit!

Originally posted on the Alliance for Fair Food website.

The launch of the Alliance for Fair Food coincided with the national release of “Food Chains,” which was a smash hit at the box office and in the streets as it premiered in cities across the country these last two weeks. With sold out screenings from Tampa to New York to San Francisco, thousands took in the big screen story of resistance and transformative change, spilling from the theaters and heading straight to the doorsteps of Fair Food holdouts Publix and Wendy’s. Here’s a slice of the action:

NEW YORK CITY
No movie premiere would be complete without a run in the Big Apple, and Food Chains certainly did not disappoint. New Yorkers filled screening after screening in two different theaters. Moved by the CIW’s story of determination and hope, moviegoers took to the streets for a weekend of Wendy’s actions, braving the subzero chill to hold a candle-light vigil and flooding the streets with a boisterous, 200-person march down Broadway.

»Food Chains is viscerally moving, shows a true lens into the lives of the very people who pick our food.«


Venerated chef and farm-to-table pioneer, Alice Waters

»Food Chains“ is the film at the Berlinale that presents the inhuman living and working conditions of tomato pickers in Florida. The title refers not only to the logistical food chains, it also refers to the chains that rule the market and determine prices: supermarkets, discounters, fast food restaurants.«


Susanne Kippenberger, Der Tagesspiegel

»Food Chains is not only an impressive and highly informing documentary, but a highly entertaining one.«


Kamran Ahmed, Next Projection

»Food Chains impressively reveals the modern-day slavery in the agricultural industry.«


Jörg Thadeusz, RBB
