Funded by 586 people from 24 countries through a crowdfunding campaign on kickstarter, CAPITAL C is the first feature length documentary dedicated to crowdfunding.

By following ZACH, JACKSON, and BRIAN, the documentary became an intimate portrait of the hopes and dreams as well as the fears and pitfalls of independent creators in the wake of the digital age.

Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story

Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story
Director: Grant Baldwin
Canada, UK, USA, 2014, 75 min.

13 DECEMBER, 19.00 - 20.30

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences. Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Double Happiness is a filmic journey to China, where a clone of the Upper Austrian town of Hallstatt has been realized as a real estate project.

In Chinese, DOUBLE HAPPINESS stands for marrying and the associated happiness for both sides. The duplicated happiness unfolds in parallel worlds of original and copy, real life and fiction, dream and reality.
