Made In Donegal is a short documentary set in Donegal County, Ireland. It focuses on the County's growing local food industry, and its potential to save Ireland from its own struggling economy. Producers, buyers, and advocates all speak out in the film in hopes to rebuild a sustainable local food model in Donegal -- what many think may be the first step towards the instigation of an economic movement in the right direction for Ireland.
This film was produced, shot, and cut in both Donegal County, Ireland and Athens, Ohio as part of a study abroad program provided by Ohio University.
Made in Donegal was an official selection in the 2013 Athens International Film Festival, and received a Student Production Award for Best Documentary from the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
