The 12th annual Farm and Film Gala takes centre stage at the Edward Milne Community School theatre on April 10.

The evening begins in the theatre foyer from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. where vendors sell items from the farm and garden, and community organization provide information about their groups.

Tea, coffee and goodies are served by EMCS culinary arts students for a donation.

From 7:45 to 9 p.m., gift basket giveaways and the film After Winter, Spring is shown.

The movie, created by filmmaker Judith Lit, is about a small rural community in the Perigord region of southwestern France, and explores the nature of small farms and the rapid changes of the last two decades that have impacted the lives of farmers everywhere.

The gala is by donation and is presented by Sooke Region Food CHI and Awareness Film Night.
