Depth of Field Films, known for its commitment to stories that capture the essence of human experience, has recently unveiled a series of new releases focused on farming. These films not only explore the timeless themes of connection, resilience, and the cycle of life but also foster a sense of community through screenings across various locales. Here’s a look at their latest offerings and how they’re bringing people together.

1. “Green Horizons”

At the forefront of Depth of Field Films’ new releases is “Green Horizons,” a visually stunning documentary that follows the lives of three diverse farming families across the globe.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Maria Chen, the documentary shines a light on the universal struggles and joys of farming, emphasizing the connection between humanity and the earth.


2. “Seeds of Change”

“Seeds of Change” is a compelling drama set against the backdrop of a small farming community grappling with the impacts of climate change. The story centers on a young farmer, Alex, who returns to their family’s land after a decade in the city, armed with innovative ideas for sustainable agriculture. Facing skepticism from the older generation, Alex must navigate the complexities of tradition and progress. This narrative film, directed by newcomer Jordan Liu, is a poignant exploration of adaptation, resilience, and the power of community in facing global challenges.


3. “Harvest Moon”

A heartwarming documentary, “Harvest Moon” provides an intimate look into the world of organic farming through the lens of a cooperative in Northern California. Celebrating the cycles of nature and the close-knit community that sustains it, the film captures the challenges and rewards of organic farming. From the delicate balance of ecological farming practices to the joys of harvest festivals, “Harvest Moon” is a testament to the ethos of living in harmony with the land.


Community Screenings

To bring these stories to the heart of communities, Depth of Field Films has launched a series of screenings in various locales, from urban centers to rural towns. These events are more than just movie showings; they are gatherings that foster dialogue, connection, and action. Here’s how Depth of Field Films is making this happen:

Interactive Panels and Q&A Sessions

Post-screening, audiences are treated to panels and Q&A sessions with the filmmakers, farmers, and agricultural experts. These discussions delve deeper into the themes of the films, explore sustainable practices, and inspire audiences to consider their relationship with food and farming.

Local Farm Partnerships

For select screenings, Depth of Field Films has partnered with local farms and agricultural organizations to host events on-site, allowing audiences to experience farming life firsthand. These partnerships also support local agriculture by providing a platform for farmers to share their stories and products.

Educational Workshops

In collaboration with agricultural experts and environmental educators, Depth of Field Films offers workshops on sustainable farming practices, composting, and community gardening. These workshops aim to empower attendees with the knowledge and skills to make a difference in their own backyards and communities.


Depth of Field Films’ latest releases and community screenings underscore the importance of storytelling in shaping our understanding and appreciation of farming. By bridging the gap between the agricultural world and the general public, these films and events cultivate a deeper awareness of the land that sustains us and the hands that feed us. In an age of disconnection, they remind us of the fundamental connections that bind us to the earth and to each other. Join the conversation and be part of the change.
