Faces of Hunger (FOH) is an annual film festival dedicated to increasing awareness of food security issues in the United States of America in partnership with New York University (NYU).
We are looking for critical responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste nationwide.
Human rights issues aren’t confined to developing countries.
In 2015, one in seven Americans experienced food insecurity; up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten every year; and because of the obesity rate, the current generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents.
In one of the world’s most developed countries, such food issues should not exist.
Through the FOH Film Festival we call upon filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.
