Growing Local

The interconnected fates of Maine farming and farmland, consumers, and the local food movement.

Project Summary
The Growing Local film series in partnership with Seedlight Pictures and Maine Farmland Trust premiered in September 2014 at The Camden International Film Festival and continues to screen through-out North America.

Seeding A Dream helps us realize the value that young farmers bring to our communities and better understand the challenges these farmers face.

Pig Not Pork is a portrait of a local food movement in transition and an entrepreneur willing to take risks to create the kind a world we will want to live (and eat) in.

Changing Hands highlights the human cost of operating a farm in a culture of cheap food, and ponders the fate of the local food movement and working farmland if small-scale family farms cannot survive in the industrialized food system.

For these stories, Evermaven was commissioned to art direct the visual narrative using illustration and motion graphics. The animated components were included in the films.
