Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows 3 meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a plant-based diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that they eventually risk everything to expose. But is it easy for them to deal with customary get-togethers with carnivorous friends and relatives? This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time. www.getvegucated.com
Planeat is the story of three men's life-long search for a diet which is good for our health, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy.
FORKS OVER KNIVES
Forks over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
MAKING THE CONNECTION
This 30-minute film Vegan Society production explores an exciting lifestyle which combines delicious, healthy food with tackling many of the ethical and global challenges facing us today and into the future. It explains how going plant-based is good for your health, good for the environment, good for the animals and can help to feed a growing world population.
GOT THE FACTS ON MILK?
Got the Facts on Milk? is an entertaining, award-winning feature documentary that dares to question the conventional wisdom of the much publicized health benefits of milk and dairy products.
Simply Raw follows 6 obese diabetic Americans as they undergo a 30-day detox program on a strictly raw wholefood plant-based diet.
FOOD FOR LIFE
Food for Life covers all aspects of the vegetarian diet including health and nutrition; animals; environment; feeding the world and examples of what to eat each day to be healthy. Experts include Dr Chris Fenn (nutritionist); Alan Durning (World Watch Institute); Juliet Gellatley (founder of Viva! and VVF and nutritional therapist) and Lesley Jeavons (cookery expert). This film has proved very popular with secondary schools across the UK, esp. in Food Tech GCSE classes.
PEACEABLE KINGDOM: THE JOURNEY HOME
Peaceable Kingdom: the Journey Home explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and who have now come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life, providing insight into the farmers' sometimes amazing connections with the animals under their care, while also making clear the complex web of social, psychological and economic forces that have led them to their present dilemma.
The Witness follows a construction contractor from a tough Brooklyn neighbourhood who explains with humour and sincerity how he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals and bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York.
Ryan Vance - Jim Morris: The story of a 77 year old vegan bodybuilder'
Vegan filmmaker Ryan Vance presents his short film about 77-year-old bodybuilder Jim Morris.

In 1996, Jim won the Mr. Olympia masters at age 61 as a vegetarian. In 2000, Jim became a vegan for health and ethical reasons.
