Documentary filmmaker Zev Robinson will be showing three short films during the festival, exploring food production in Scotland, the environment and the economy. The screenings will be streamed online from 10-25th October, with a £3 fee towards future food film projects.
Zev said: “I’ve been working closely with communities and producers from the Scottish Islands to lowlands in recent years. These three films offer an insight into farming life, revealing the challenges and commitment it takes to produce good quality food for your table.”
“Rocks, Crofts and Sheep” takes you to the spectacular Islands of Lewis, Harris and Scalpay to explore local food, crofting and the history of land ownership in the Outer Hebrides. Watch the trailer: https://vimeo.com/312153368
