SCREENING KIT 2018
The Faces of Hunger (FOH) Screening Kit is a digital film screening package for college students to get informed and take action about food issues worldwide.
On October 16, 2018, in commemoration of World Food Day 2018 and in conjunction with Universities Fighting World Hunger, we are spurring a nationwide dialogue about the everyday realities that millions of Americans face. Through coordinated screenings of short films about food and hunger issues, we aim to reach and inspire students, our leaders in change.
We’ve made participating easy – all you need is to register below and secure a place to screen the films at your school. We’ll then send you a Screening Kit containing a selection of films, a discussion guide, and a social media toolkit. Screenings can be scheduled to last anywhere from 1-3 hours.
THE FILM COLLECTION
The 2018 film collection is comprised of 11 short films that show critical responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste in the United States.
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.
Upon registration completion you will receive:
Access to a dedicated Vimeo channel with this year’s 11 short films about food insecurity, quality, and waste in America
A packet including suggestions of panel discussion topics, screening tips and suggestions, social media sharing toolkit, and much more!
