On Saturday, September 19, 10 AM at the Screening Room, the Work-In Progress Session is going to feature select scenes from FOOD FIGHT – Inside the Battle for Market Basket and offer the opportunity for the audience to provide input to the film’s director & associate producer. The event is a free offering of the Newburyport Documentary Film Festival.

It is the remarkable story of Market Basket and the power of ordinary, passionate people to rewrite corporate history. This will be the first look at what promises to be a much anticipated film due for release later this fall.

“NDFF was the first festival to accept my film and helped kick off a chain of screenings in Massachusetts as well as a preservation award from the city of Gloucester. The historic city and venues were extremely fitting for a documentary about preservation.”
— Rob Apse, The Stones of the Quarries (2014)


“I had a great experience when I was there with my last film, SHADOW OF THE HOUSE.”
— Allie Humenuk, Shadow of the House (2007)
