Young Agrarians features young people who plants the seeds for a sustainable future. Profit Cola takes viewers on a rider down the sugar rollercoaster of Profit Cola and the connection to childhood obesity. Water Warriors deals with the rising cost of water and in particular residents of Highland Park Michigan who are questioning who will pay for the soaring cost of a necessity.

Don’t Worry explains how Sunny D is marked to young children. One More Dead Fish is a short that showcases Handline fishermen who fight to survive in a globalizing industry. The Meatrix is a journey starring Leo the pig and his journey about taking the “blue pill” and the small family farms who produce food.

The Future of Food looks at the current state of food, science and capitalism as they merge placing the global food system in potential peril. Food For Thought shows Balitmore youth that love their vegetables and fruit.

Broken Limbs: Searching for the new American farmer focuses on the frontline of the battle in Washington to save America’s small-scale apple farmers. Finally is Ripe for Change: that states in a “world where scarcity is the norm, our food system is ripe for change.”

All of the above shorts range in length from approximately 3 minutes to 9 minutes and the organizers say this is the “perfect  time for “food for thought” as you ready to plant your own garden,” and everyone is invited to come out to the evening event.
