Organic Panic premieres on VisionTV April 13, 10 pm ET/7 pm PT.

For immediate release – Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Sixteen Films Ltd. presents the VisionTV premiere of ORGANIC PANIC.

A new 5-part documentary series, premiering April 13th, 2015 on VisionTV

Directed by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta (I’ll Follow You Down, Siddharth) with executive producer Moses Znaimer, Organic Panic tackles all sides of the raging organics debate. In partnership with ZoomerMedia Ltd., Toronto production company Sixteen Films Ltd is proud to announce this new, 5-part documentary series premiering to over 10 million households April 13th, 10pm ET/7pm PT  on VisionTV.

An organic revolution is taking place in homes and business around the world. Organic products account for over $64 billion dollars spent worldwide annually. In Canada, over $3.7 billion dollars were spent on organics in 2012 alone.

But what does organic really mean? How can consumers make informed decisions and separate fact from greenwashing—a practice that cares only about the bottom line? Each episode pits an organic “Believer” against an organic “Skeptic” in a battle for the hearts and minds of concerned citizens.

Organic Panic gets to the core of the organics debate through the personal stories and commentary of experts, including:

 

  • Sarah Elton (Locavore, Consumed: Food for a Finite Planet)

 

The stakes couldn’t be higher. Is your food killing you? Is your makeup toxic? Are your clothes destroying the planet? Is “organic” all just a scam? The answers will surprise even the most ardent supporters and critics of the organics industry.

Organic Panic exposes false and misleading information about the organics industry, and empowers people to make informed decisions about caring for themselves, their families and the world.

Sixteen Films’ Peter and Jane to screen at 2014 Canadian Film Festival 

Man with gun pointing at his head, person holding gun not seen.
Peter and Jane met on the Internet. They liked each others’ profiles and decided to go out on a date. That’s when they discovered what wasn’t mentioned on-line.

Sixteen Films’ new short “Peter and Jane Know Some of the Same People” will play at the Canadian Film Festival’s closing night gala. This is Sixteen Films’ third project to show at the CFF.

Writer/director Chris Remerowski and producer David Bratton are longtime friends and creative partners who have been making film and television together in Toronto for over 10 years. Their first feature ever showed at the Canadian Film Festival, and they are proud and pleased to once again be a part of this fantastic event.

About Peter and Jane

Peter and Jane met on the Internet. Peter and Jane liked each others profiles and decided to go out on a date. Peter and Jane are about to discover that what gets left out can be a lot more interesting than what stays in–and a lot more dangerous.

With an intense score by Toronto band SlashRun, comedy/thriller “Peter and Jane” delivers laughter and chills, and keeps you guessing until the last frame.
