Friday Harbor Film Festival wishes to congratulate the filmmakers for winning "Best Documentary Short” in the 2020 FHFF AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARDS!


Vertical: The Future of Farming follows a new generation of urban, indoor farmers, whose approach to food production offers the potential to combat climate change while feeding hundreds of millions. From New York City, to Portland, Oregon to Singapore, these farmers are turning agricultural conventions on their head by utilizing vertical space in cities, rather than expansive rural fields. The result, according to retired Columbia Professor Dickson Despommier, represents the "next evolutionary jump in humanity's quest for a reliable, sustainable food supply."
