MFF19 Alumni THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM nabs SEVEN Critics Choice Award nominations!
A testament to the immense complexity of nature, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When faced with an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County. The land they’ve chosen, however, creates years of daunting work, and an unforeseen test of their ideals and their ultimate dream: a biodiverse farm that exists in complete balance with the natural world.
A Q&A will follow the screening with:
- Eric Olsen (Director of Land Program, The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey)
- Eric Derby (Project Manager, Foodshed Alliance and Associate Publisher, Edible Jersey)
- Charles Rosen (Founder + CEO, Ironbound Hard Cider)
- Jon McConaughy (CEO, Brick Farm Group + Owner, Double Brook Farm)
- Deborah Cerbone (President, Cerbone Associates Landscape Design)
Come early at 6:30 pm to enjoy cider donuts + sample hard cider from our friends at Ironbound. Take home a free, farm-themed gift from TNC of local NJ apples wrapped in a logo bandana.
This Screening is Presented in Partnership with
HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE
As we soon begin the season of giving, please consider helping our neighbors in need. Montclair Film is collecting items for the Human Needs Food Pantry from November 1st through December 15th.
We are requesting basic food items to supplement the pantry once the holiday rush is over — specifically: breakfast cereal, canned fruit, canned soups and canned tuna. Please check expiration dates as they cannot accept expired food.
Items can be dropped off in the lobby of Montclair Film (505 Bloomfield Ave.) during November/December screenings or classes. You can find the complete list of screenings here.
Thank you in advance for your generous donations.
