Please watch Before The Plate.
The questions, the stories and the people behind where our food comes from and how it gets to our plate.
Before The Plate attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and farming in Canada. Modern consumers are increasingly interested in where and how their food gets to them, but accurate information is hard to come by and often feels out of reach. Before The Plate follows young farmers and industry experts in order to show the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answer the most pressing questions consumers have about their food. The film will follow food staples of the Canadian diet all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations, and showcase the final product at Canoe, one of Toronto's most prestigious restaurants. The goal is to submit the finished documentary to the Toronto International Film Festival, as well as other influential film festivals in 2018. The project will follow various types of agriculture, including both organic and conventional practices to answer some of the biggest questions related to farming in our society.
