An interview with our colleagues at Happen Films
What’s the role of filmmakers in times of ecological and social collaps? Can we in fact contribute to positive change through making inspirational and solutions-focused films? Or are we simply doing what we love doing, and deluding ourselves when we think it’s important work?
Happen Films is a production company based in New Zealand that produces films on topics like permaculture, regenerative farming and waste-free living. It’s run by my friends and colleagues Antoinette Wilson and Jordan Osmond.
For the past few years Campfire Stories and Happen Films have followed and supported each other’s work. But this is the first time we actually sit down for a proper chat to compare notes and share visions for the future.
Watch the video version of the podcast above and the audio-only version below.

The book Antoinette mentions as one that had a big impact on her life is The Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon. “The first 100 pages were life-changing, the rest is recipes – always funny saying your world was changed by a recipe book!” -Antoinette Wilson
