Stock quotes in this article: WFM

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Whole Foods Market announces that "GROW!" will debut online in August as part of the company's Do Something Reel Film Festival.  In addition, this month marks the beginning of a partnership with digital entertainment curator, FilmBuff, which will bring the films featured through the Festival to a larger audience through multi-platform distribution.

"GROW!", written and directed by Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson, is a window into the world of a new generation of sustainable farmers. The film is available to digital audiences beginning August 1 including iTunes, as well as other digital platforms such as Amazon Instant View, YouTube Rentals, Cinemanow, and Vudu for $3.99 in standard definition and $4.99 in high definition. Visit www.dosomethingreel.com for information on the film and a complete list of platforms with links to stream the film on your digital platform of choice.

"GROW!" chronicles the struggles, success and challenges faced by 20 passionate young farmers from Georgia, who, fed up with corporate America and its influence on the food system, aim to solve some of the current system's inequities by growing "clean and fair" food.

"We believe that these young farmers hold the key to a more sustainable future and that they are the solution to our broken food system," said filmmaker Christine Anthony. "The Do Something Reel Festival is a great way to get people energized, and we hope that people who see GROW! will be inspired to think about the way they shop, cook and eat."

"FilmBuff is very excited to be partnering with an exceptional brand like Whole Foods Market," says Janet Brown, CEO of FilmBuff. "We are thrilled to be able to provide our extensive distribution network to help expand the reach and awareness of quality food and environmental films to the widest possible audience."

Do Something Reel, which kicked off on Earth Day, is an ongoing collection of provocative films about food and environmental issues that can be purchased and streamed online through a variety of digital platforms, all of which can be accessed at www.dosomethingreel.com. The festival is presented in association with Applegate Organic & Natural Meat, Earthbound Farm Organic, Popcorn Indiana and siggi's.
