Growing Cities is a documentary film that examines the role of urban farming in America and asks how much power it has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. The film follows two friends on their road trip across the country as they meet the people who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food — from those growing food in backyards to make ends meet; to educators with the goal of teaching kids to eat better; to activists seeking a meaningful alternative to the industrial food system and more.

A question-and-answer discussion will follow with a panel moderated by Michelle Moskowitz Brown, Director of Local Matters.

Admission is free, donations are encouraged.

The Columbus Film Council is supported by grants from the Ohio Arts Council and the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
