FORESTS, FINS & FOOTPRINTS

Director: Michael Glaser | 23:00 | Canada | 2017 | Documentary

In Alberta, Public Lands in the Foothills are being clear-cut at a rate faster than they can recover, with little opportunity for public input or understanding. Forests, Fins and Footprints is a community-funded documentation of clearcutting in the Ghost Valley — a watershed located just upstream of Calgary, on the Eastern Slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Wondering how to make a difference, we asked for answers from environmentalists, biologists, geologists, and people who live and work on the land. How does clearcutting affect an area’s water, landscape, and wildlife, as well as the people living in that watershed? How will clear-cut forestry impact the future? And how can we as a society move forward more thoughtfully?

THE STORY OF ALBERTA’S MALTSTERS

Director: Hendrik van Wyk and Braam Compton | 17:06 | Canada | 2018 | Documentary

Alberta, Canada has a strong grain producing history thanks to the flat topography of its landscape, its fertile soil, sunny summers, and the pioneering hardiness of its people. The Province’s farmers plant and grow the best barley and wheat in North America. It is this grain that is sent all over the world to make some of the world’s best beer and whiskies. It is also the grain that is helping to fuel the explosion; some may say the revival, of craft brewing in North America.

However, there is a less glamorous side to the story. A contribution that begs to be highlighted and must be shared. A role that remains obscured in the beard boding, hipster culture wielding world of craft. It is the role of the maltster. Before Alberta’s grain becomes beer and whisky, it needs first to become malt, which is the foundational ingredient in any brew. Someone is malting our grains and we need to know who it is. We are telling the maltster’s story.

The role of Alberta’s Maltsters goes back to the late eighteen hundreds with a company called Canada Malting. Today, this company is the most significant malt company in Canada, producing approximately 400,000 metric tonnes of malt per year. They are sending it to brewers and distillers around the world. Alberta’s maltster has been fueling the beer industry, and more recently, the craft beer and distilling industry in a substantial way, and they are planning to continue to do so.
