Named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the Vancouver International Film Festival, To Make A Farm asks: what might the future of local food and farming look like? This beautifully photographed documentary explores the lives of five young people who have decided to become small-scale farmers. Facing daily challenges and overwhelming obstacles as they work their first seasons on the land, the joys and disappointments of bringing life from the earth become a quiet manifesto for social change. VIFF calls To Make A Farm "exceptionally hopeful, giving us a close-range view of humanity along with a detailed portrayal of the nuts and bolts of agriculture."
