film descriptions

What's for Dinner?

What’s For Dinner?, a short documentary, examines the rapidly increasing consumption of animal-based foods in China that has mirrored the country’s swift economic growth in recent years. What’s For Dinner? is trying to answer a big question: can people in the developing world eat as much meat, eggs, and dairy as people in industrialized countries without destroying the planet? 

The film offers a unique look into China’s rapidly changing food and agricultural landscape and sheds light on some of its consequences for public health, sustainability, the environment, climate change, and animal welfare.

WHY VEGAN?

Veganism is the rejection of speciesism and human supremacy in mind, heart and action. Vegans respect animals as intrinsic, sentient individuals, and therefore do not support their use as objects for our personal pleasure, amusement, or convenience. Veganism is about refusing to view other beings as commodities that we can freely exploit and use, not only for food, but also for such things as clothing, sport, entertainment, experimentation etc. Veganism addresses important issues which affect us all, not just the obvious ones like animal exploitation, but also increasing violence, world hunger, dwindling resources, our declining health, and the agricultural practices that are ravaging our planet.

Dude, where do you get your protein?

Protein is the most revered nutrient of all and has driven our food choices for over a hundred years. But what if (almost) everything you thought you knew about protein was wrong? 

A 30 minute film that's not only fun to watch, but informative and puts to rest some of the most important myths about protein. If you know someone who justifies their eating habits using the "protein" argument, show them this!

Plant-based nutrition vs Animal-based nutrition

Many people think that eating solely plant-based foods is not healthy and are still convinced that meat, dairy, fish and eggs are a necessary part of our diet. But as this video shows, by eating a varied diet containing plenty of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains, it is easy to get all the nutrients we require.. with the added bonus that plant-based foods contain no saturated animal fat, no cholesterol and none of the acidifying effects of animal derived foods.

Best Before: The london revolution

A short documentary about rising food prices and an impending food crisis in the UK. In London, obesity and food poverty rates are skyrocketing, and healthy food has become the privilege of the wealthy. But London is also the city where community organisations are shaping alternatives. From city farms to roof gardens, farmers' markets to food cooperatives, Londoners are taking matters into their own hands. Best Before follows the people taking back control of food production in the UK and who are providing an alternative for a more sustainable, ecological and socially just food system.

What We can Do to End World Hunger

The growing consumption of meat, poultry and dairy products has created an explosion in livestock populations worldwide. As this video explains, meat-eating societies are the main cause of world hunger because they feed a disproportionate percentage of the world's crops to the 60 billion land animals annually killed by the meat, dairy and egg industries worldwide, and tens of billions of marine animals... instead of the 7 billion people on the planet.
