IFT Encourages Important Conversations About Food Through New Film — Food Evolution — and Broad Distribution Strategy

September 28, 2017

CHICAGO – Food Evolution, the critically acclaimed documentary film exploring the food-related challenges we face globally and the critical role that science plays in addressing them, is now available to Hulu subscribers. Nearly four years ago, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) commissioned and provided funding to develop a film that would inspire a rational conversation about the critical role of science and innovation in building a safe, nutritious, and sustainable food supply for everyone, which is at the heart of the 17,000 member institute’s mission. The film was released in theaters this summer and recently became available on iTunes, Amazon and other paid video-on-demand platforms. 

“We’re thrilled to offer Food Evolution to a wider audience through its placement on Hulu,” said IFT CEO Christie Tarantino-Dean, FASAE, CAE. “Our global community of scientists were passionate about the need to reach a broader audience with a compelling and fact-based story about sound science that asked critical questions and explored the challenges in our global food system. Food Evolution has already sparked some important conversations and debate. We look forward to watching the dialogue continue as the film reaches more viewers.”  

Food Evolution is directed by Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by esteemed science communicator Neil DeGrasse Tyson. 

Hulu subscribers can access Food Evolution here.
