Hidden between buildings and across networks of backyards, germinating in classrooms and sprouting up in city centers, a grassroots movement is thriving in the Bay Area . . .

Edible City is the forthcoming documentary from East Bay Pictures, following the stories of folks who are digging their hands into the dirt, fighting for sustainability and social justice by doing something truly revolutionary: growing a local food system.

Now is the time to tell this story about real people making real change! Edible City will provoke critical thought, further the dialogue surrounding food and our food system, and inspire audiences to action.

The East Bay Pictures team has been hard at work on Edible City for over a year now, and we're nearing completion. Throughout the process we've had incredible support from hundreds of generous people around Bay Area, and across the country. Now we need your help to finish!

Our goal is to raise over $5,000 by February 1st, 2010, so we can stay on target to finish the film by March, 2010. Once completed, Edible City will be entered in film festivals worldwide, and shown to distributors like PBS, the Discovery Channel, and the Independent Film Channel. Ultimately, the film will be available online and on DVD, in order to reach as broad an audience as possible.

Many people have supported Edible City because they share the vision of a sustainable and just food system. If this is a movement you want to support and a movie you'd like to see, we're asking you to pre-buy a digital download and signed DVD of "Edible City" for $25.

In addition, a tax deductible contribution to the project can be made through our fiscal sponsor, the Bay Area Video Coalition by clicking this link: http://www.ediblecitymovie.com/donate/
