License to Farm Extended Interviews
In 2016, SaskCanola launched the 30-minute documentary License to Farm, to highlight the facts behind common misconceptions about agriculture production in Canada. The goal of this documentary is to inspire producers to engage in more conversations about food, build trust with their urban neighbours, and protect their social license to farm. Since the film launched, it’s been viewed over 80,000 times in over 165 countries, and has garnered over 2 million social media impressions. Last fall, SaskCanola was the recipient of seven Best of CAMA awards from the Canadian Agri-Marketing Association as well as the Food & Farming Champion Award, for producing the successful film project. This year, SaskCanola will launch five extended interviews of unseen footage from the License to Farm vault.
