Hungry Filmmakers Call for Entries

Following the first successful, sold-out event at Anthology Film Archives on December 15, 2009, the organizers of Hungry Filmmakers are announcing a call for entries for future events.

Excerpts of documentary films will be selected based upon the film’s relevance to food and agriculture, quality of work/storytelling, and filmmakers’ commitment to attend the event. Preference will be given to films still in production/post-production and those that have recently been released.

There is no deadline to submit a film sample. Submissions should be 10 minutes in length, accompanied by a synopsis (100 words maximum) and mailed to:

Hungry Filmmakers Submissions
291 East 3rd Street, 4B
New York, NY 10009

Along with co-hosts, Jimmy Carbone & Tim Lynch, Hungry Filmmakers co-curators Cathy Erway & Shelley Rogers are committed to showcasing the work of documentary filmmakers who are contributing to the dialogue and growth of the sustainable food movement.

Hungry Filmmakers is a not-for-profit event hosted by Anthology Film Archives and Jimmy’s No. 43 and curated by food writer Cathy Erway and filmmaker Shelley Rogers. Any proceeds garnered from the evening will be donated to the nonprofit organization Just Food, which works to promote access of fresh, seasonal, sustainably grown food for all New York City residents.

Anthology Film Archives is an international center for the preservation, study and exhibition of film and video with a particular focus on American avant-garde cinema.
