Food Film Shorts

For the fourth year running we are sponsoring the film category - now named  Food Film Shorts. We're delighted that the category is also being supported by the fabulous Foodism magazine, to really help spread the word. We've changed the name of the category because we'd love to see films which make a social or political comment about a range of topics from: Fairtrade, technology and food to sustainability and food waste. Ultimately though we'd love any food film shorts (max 180 seconds) which delight and:
  • Spark discussion
  • Have a narrative; beginning, middle, end
  • Are visually striking
To see examples of the 2016 shortlist and winners see below:

Carl Pendle wins unearthed® food in film 2016

The winner of unearthed® Food in Film, a category of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2016 was announced at a packed reception at the Mall Galleries, London, as Carl Pendle (UK) for his brilliant film short, Chilli Festival.

The UK’s Carl Pendle is announced as the unearthed® food in film winner – a category of the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2016

As a previous finalist, in both 2015 and 2015, we’re delighted to see photographer and film-maker Carl win this year. We loved watching his films ‘Mushroom Hunting‘ and ‘The Food and People of Marrakech’  and really enjoy his light-hearted approach to food – which perfectly captures the spirit of the ‘food in film award.

The judging process took place last month and judges for our category comprised of George Motz, Founder and Director of the Food Film Festival, NYC, Nik Powell, Director of the National Film & Television School and James Winter, Producer, BBC’s Saturday Kitchen Live.

“The competition was intensely fierce,” says Simon, “there were entries from across the world and the standard was phenomenal. Carl’s film about a chilli festival in rural Sussex, having won the Documentary section, stood out from the rest, however, for its highly characterful wit and atmosphere.”  Not only does Carl now carry the prestigious title unearthed® Food in Film winner 2016, he also walks away with £1,000.
