Harnessing creativity to effect positive change

Join our #MeatFreed community

Who we are

MeatFreed is a project born out of Launchpad, the entrepreneurship programme at Falmouth University, Penryn campus. We started MeatFreed because of the negative impacts of industrialized meat production on the environment, animal welfare, and individuals’ health.

We believe in the power of creative arts to drive lasting change.

We are partnering with the creative departments across Falmouth University to show your creative works inspired by vegetables and about the issue around meat production/consumption.

How to submit your creative work

Pop-up event:

  • We are seeking: short film projects, ideas/treatments of film/video content inspired by vegetables and about the issue around meat production/consumption. We are open to films across any theme – comedy, drama, horror, polemic, etc. These films are very short (about 1 min) or a short summary of a treatment for a work.

  • Submission requirements: Everyone’s submissions will be featured online and showcased on our site and social.

  • When: Starting in early Oct.

  • How to submit: TBD

Film festival:

  • We are seeking: Same as above but these films can be a few minutes long or a two-page summary of a treatment for a work.

  • Submission requirements: A selection of submissions will be featured in a digital film festival and likely smaller pop-up events before with screenings of everyone’s submissions. We will also showcase the best submissions for the opportunity to receive potential funding from film industry experts and film development funders.

  • When: Around late 2021 or early 2022

  • How to submit: TBD
