RG Productions' partner Viva Farms featured in The NY Times!

Here at Reel Grrls we recently created a promotional video for Viva Farms, an organization who is doing important progressive work to support new farmers. We were thrilled to see that Viva’s work caught they eye of The New York Times, and was recently featured in a piece last Monday about how small scale farming is creating a new profit model for agriculture. The article did a great job highlighting the work Viva does helping Hispanics who previously worked as low-wage laborers start their own businesses. 

Reel Grrls created the video under our production company, RG Productions. At RG Productions we serve socially minded organizations doing important community work, and Viva’s story - as showcased in both the NYT and our video - is a proud example of exactly that.  

Check out RG Productions’ video below, and make sure to read the article here.

Congratulations to Reel Grrls participant Dova Castaneda Zilly for having her animated film "The Girl With the Birds" screen at the Los Angeles Film Festival this past weekend! Dova made this beautiful light-box video as a 10 year old with a small team of her peers during our 2010 Summer Animation Camp - and we're so proud to see it showcased at such a great festival! If you live in LA, you can catch her film and the rest of the Future Filmmaker Series at the next screening on June 23rd.
