Katharina Stieffenhofer is a Winnipeg documentary filmmaker, with a passion for ecological agriculture, healthy communities, environmental sustainability and social justice. Her current documentary film “From Seed to Seed” is driven by her desire to engage a wide audience, grow support for ecological agriculture and participate in this global movement.
Her appreciation and respect for farming is rooted in her childhood and youth growing up on a mixed family farm on a Rhine island in Germany and expanded when her parents immigrated to Canada to become grain farmers in Southern Manitoba.
“…And This Is My Garden”, 2010, was her first feature documentary film about a school gardening project in Northern Manitoba, which empowered the students with the skills to grow their own food sustainably in their own backyards.The film screened widely and won many awards. Learn more.
This film is dedicated to all farmers and to my family.
Hans & Ruth Stieffenhofer, my parents, were Family Farmers and excellent stewards of the Land.
