Abalimi has been accepted to the Food + Farm Film Fest in San Francisco!

We’re excited to be part of a new, creative and exciting smart food movement.

About FFF Fest:

Our second festival will take place on April 3-6, 2014, at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, California. This unique film festival pairs local chefs with new films to create a delicious feast for the eyes and mouth.

Our festival is a celebration of farmers, gardeners, chefs, and animals of all kinds, from bees to goats to mussels.

Each film is paired with a delicious bite from a local restaurant, and we open the festival with live music, food, and drinks at Root Division gallery.

The film is done!
With the help of our talented composer, Scott Interrante, and our amazing sound designer, Ted Marcus, we’ve finished the film.
And it’s currently submitted to a few festivals that we are crossing all appendages to get into.
Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding as our post process dragged on and on.
We are jumping onto the printing of the posters and burning of DVDs for those Kickstarter supporters who qualify.
The next step for us will be editing a trailer.  That will hopefully be available sometime in November.
Until then, thanks once more, and we’ll update again soon!

We’ve locked the edit. We’re now working with Scott Interrante, our music composer. Everything is sounding great, and we’re moving forward quickly.

Do you see that you’re wearing your jacket? You’re wearing your pants? The cotton that you’re wearing is coming from the ground. There’s nothing nothing nothing nothing can come from the sky. Everything is coming from the ground.

Where we got this idea:

We borrowed the name for this documentary from Abalimi Bezekhaya, a non-profit organization operating in the townships around Cape Town, South Africa.
