Where can I see the movie? This is a question that has been coming almost on a daily basis through all channels since the August release of the food documentary “Before The Plate.”

Back in 2016 when the concept of Before the Plate was dreamed up, I never imagine there would be this many people interested in seeing the project. Fast forward to today, and “Before The Plate” is a documentary the ag community can be proud of — capturing the beauty of agriculture for one, but most importantly, for showing people who don’t farm what it is really all about. Happy moments, sad moments, and even a few chuckles, “Before The Plate” takes those who have never been on a farm before down the wild and crazy road that is today’s agriculture system.

Taking one plate of food from one of Toronto’s most famous restaurants, Canoe, and following each of those ingredients back to the very farms they came from. Leading the way is one of Canada’s top chefs, John Horne, who is the perfect character for this story. Curious, talented and a little rough around the edges, he leads the way for open dialogue between farmers and those who come from the city.

After playing at a handful of festivals across Canada, “Before The Plate” is now in the process of being submitted to more substantial online platforms where the masses can watch the movie right at home. With fingers crossed, all those who were involved in the project are waiting, hoping that this film can be in front of those who need to see it most.
