WHY VEGAN?

Veganism is the rejection of speciesism and human supremacy in mind, heart and action. Vegans respect animals as intrinsic, sentient individuals, and therefore do not support their use as objects for our personal pleasure, amusement, or convenience. Veganism is about refusing to view other beings as commodities that we can freely exploit and use, not only for food, but also for such things as clothing, sport, entertainment, experimentation etc. Veganism addresses important issues which affect us all, not just the obvious ones like animal exploitation, but also increasing violence, world hunger, dwindling resources, our declining health, and the agricultural practices that are ravaging our planet.

PLANT-BASED NUTRITION VS ANIMAL-BASED NUTRITION

Many people think that eating solely plant-based foods is not healthy and are still convinced that meat, dairy, fish and eggs are a necessary part of our diet. But as this video shows, by eating a varied diet containing plenty of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains, it is easy to get all the nutrients we require.. with the added bonus that plant-based foods contain no saturated animal fat, no cholesterol and none of the acidifying effects of animal derived foods.

WHAT WE CAN DO TO END WORLD HUNGER

The growing consumption of meat, poultry and dairy products has created an explosion in livestock populations worldwide. As this video explains, meat-eating societies are the main cause of world hunger because they feed a disproportionate percentage of the world's crops to the 60 billion land animals annually killed by the meat, dairy and egg industries worldwide, and tens of billions of marine animals... instead of the 7 billion people on the planet.

11:30 - SHOOTING OF MIGRATORY BIRDS IN MALTA (LEAGUE AGAINST CRUEL SPORTS PRODUCTION)

In April 2014 a team from the League Against Cruel Sports, made up of campaigners and investigators, made their way to Malta along with Wildlife Expert and League Vice President Bill Oddie.

Every spring a massacre takes place in Malta as thousands of migratory birds stop off on the island to rest during their migration.

During spring hunting (shooting, but termed ‘hunting' locally), any birds that make their way to Malta are faced by thousands of hunters with the sinister motto ‘if it flies, it dies'.

This film seeks to expose the persecution of migratory birds that the League team witnessed first hand.

12:40 - The Dutch Weed Burger

If human food consumption continues on the current scale, in 2050 the world will be in need of three earths to feed us all. More and more scientists agree on the need for a more plant-based diet. Lisette Kreischer - Dutch vegan foodie - and documentary maker Mark Kulsdom intend to tackle this challenge and have set their eyes on seaweed as the food of the future. Together they head to New York to immerse themselves in the world's finest vegan culture in search of the perfect seaweed recipe.

2:00 - THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE

This film illuminates the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and photographic lens of acclaimed photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, we become intimately familiar with a cast of non-human animals. The film follows Jo-Anne over the course of a year as she photographs several animal stories in parts of Canada, the U.S. and in Europe. Each story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment and Research.

3:45 - WHAT'S FOR DINNER?

What’s For Dinner?, a short documentary, examines the rapidly increasing consumption of animal-based foods in China that has mirrored the country’s swift economic growth in recent years. What’s For Dinner? is trying to answer a big question: can people in the developing world eat as much meat, eggs, and dairy as people in industrialized countries without destroying the planet? 

The film offers a unique look into China’s rapidly changing food and agricultural landscape and sheds light on some of its consequences for public health, sustainability, the environment, climate change, and animal welfare.

A groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.
