Depth of Field: Films About Farming

Depth of Field is a series of 40 short documentaries produced and presented by the National Farmers Union and March Forth Creative. The films showcase Canadian farmers and farm workers, and their sustainable farming practices on and off the land. Rotational grazing, seed saving, building healthy soils, and working for social justice– different farmers highlight their own priorities and, together, these films tell the story of farming practices that would create the food system we all want. The National Farmers Union wants Canadian food consumers to learn more about the work of farming and the thoughtful commitment farmers in communities all across Canada , like the ones featured in Depth of Field, contributes to building a thriving food system that benefits people and the land.
