  • Watch PLANEAT online (iPhone and iPad too)!

    We are really excited to announce that you can watch PLANEAT right here, streaming from your computer.  It'll take a few seconds to do, and you can pay using your accounts on amazon, paypal or credit card.

    The film was made completely independently, we had no big studio behind us, it was entirely funded by the blood, sweat and tears of us, the filmmakers, so we hope you will support us in our efforts to help change the world.

    After you've watched the film, please take a couple minutes to help us to build our reviews and let other people know what you thought of the film by giving us a quick review here.

  • How has PLANEAT been received?

    We have spent three years of our lives making this film, and have completely self-funded it ourselves.  From April - June 2011, it was released in cinemas in 90 cities across the States and 5 cities across the UK.  The film was was thought to be so important, that it was even been shown in London's Parliament by the Shadow Minister for the Environment to galvanise support over changes in food policy.  We know that people like the film when they watch it, and that it's inspiring people to make positive changes in their lives.  It's also been critically acclaimed, here's what the press are saying: “Should be compulsory viewing” (THE HERALD), “Utterly compelling” (EMPIRE), “Punchy and inspirational” (★★★★TOTAL FILM), “For fans of cookery programmes it is likely to be love at first sight” (★★★★EYE FOR FILM), “Compelling scientific evidence” (★★★TIME OUT).

    But what we're missing now is the money to market the film, and get it out to as many people as possible, that's why we need your help.  Please join us in our efforts to get the film shown all over the world, by hosting your own screening of the film.  Screenings have been arranged so far by foodies, eco-warriors, and doctors in places as far flung as ireland, South Africa, Japan and Germany.  To find out more details please go to www.planeat.tv/organise-screening
