Seed Hunter has been busily making its way around the globe to various film festivals in Canada, USA, China and Japan.
In October, Seed Hunter screened in Toronto at the Planet In Focus Festival and also in Yerevan, Armenia at the Sun Child Film Festival. Armenian seed collector Natalya Rukhyan was able to present the film and chat to the audience.
The film was then invited to screen at the United Nations Association Film Festival in Palo Alto, just outside San Francisco, at the end of October. This year, the Festival’s theme was climate change and energy, so we were thrilled to have Seed Hunter up there on the big screen.
Another award came our way in November. Seed Hunter won the Gold Panda Grand Prize for Nature at the Sichuan TV Festival in Chengdu, China. Sally Ingleton was there to pick up the award.
Sally then went on to Japan where Seed Hunter had a special screening at the Australian Embassy in Tokyo followed by a screening in Kanazawa as part of the inaugural Kanazawa Environment Film Festival run by the United Nations University. The screening was followed by a public seminar on environmental film making.
