"To Make a Farm" Film Viewing: May 5 & 6, 2012 (Regina)

http://tomakeafarm.ca

Named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the Vancouver International Film Festival in 2011 and nominated for the Best Documentary Nature & Environment and Best of Saskatchewan Golden Sheaf Awards at the 2012 Yorkton Film Festival, To Make a Farm asks: what might the future of local food and farming look like? Filmmaker Steve Suderman examines his own family history in farming while discovering a vibrant community of new small-scale farmers. To Make A Farm depicts the struggles and triumphs of a season on a fledgling farm through the eyes of five young people who have decided to take up this demanding profession, despite not having farm backgrounds.

Honest, personal, and beautifully photographed, To Make A Farm has been called "exceptionally hopeful" by the Vancouver International Film Festival, where the film had its world premiere, and was held over for an additional screening after receiving sell-out crowds. Since then, the film has continued to screen at festivals and community showings across Canada and the U.S..

Regina-based filmmaker Steve Suderman will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film.

Regina Public Library Film Theatre:
Saturday May 5 - 7:00 pm **Filmmaker in attendance
Sunday May 6 - 9:00 pm **Filmmaker in attendance
