Much gratitude to you for your interest in & support of our work. We’ll be out on the road again soon, heading to farms in Minnesota, Saskatchewan, and California for our “How Fair is your Food?” project.

Hearty thanks!

The festival focuses solely on green filmmaking, from content to production. Chipotle will be awarding a prize to the film that best matches their philosophy of “eco-friendly food with integrity” on April 4th during the ECOtainment awards at the Writers Guild Theater…and WOAO? is honored to be under consideration for the award!
