The Horticultural Alliance Gardiner's Film Festival
Time & Location
About The Event
HAH is thrilled to host our second annual Gardeners Film Festival to enjoy cinema about
horticulture, in the off-season. This year we’ll screen two films and we hope you’ll join us for one
or both of them. March - when the weather can be teasingly warm before we’re hit with yet another
blast of inclement weather - is a perfect time to indulge in armchair gardening. We’re excited about
the film selections, as the films are quite different from each other yet both offer insightful
examinations of our relationship to the natural world.
Honeyland tells the story of a traditional
wild beekeeper whose livelihood is threatened
when a nomadic family moves next door and
disrupts Honeyland’s natural balance. This
compelling documentary about the delicate
relationship between nature and humanity won
three Sundance Film Festival awards including
the Grand Jury Prize. It also received two Oscar
The Gardener is a breathtaking film about
Les Quatres Vents, the gardens of Francis
Cabot, plantsman and founder of The Garden
Conservancy. It includes interviews with
Francis Cabot, as he reflects on his ambitious
and inspiring gardens that span twenty acres on
the scenic hills of the Charlevoix County in
Quebec. The film shares his insight into why
gardening imprints our senses and lives.
The Garden Conservancy will introduce The Gardener, and will speak about its visionary founder
Francis Cabot. Refreshments will be offered between the films as well as after, providing an
engaging afternoon with fellow gardeners on the East End.
Tickets: $15 for one film, $20 for both.
Tickets available here.
