Jeremy Seifert speaks passionately about the multi-faceted issues surrounding the food waste crisis, specifically in the United States, but also how our wastefulness here impacts the entire planet.
GMO OMG, his second feature documentary, explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere.
Jeremy Seifert’s first feature documentary, Dive! Living Off America’s Waste, is a poignant, and at times humorous, essay on American food waste and a rallying cry against the hunger crisis in the USA.
Born in Tyler, Texas and raised in Colorado, Jeremy Seifert has traveled extensively throughout Asia, South America, Africa, and Europe. He has a B.A. in English Literature from John Brown University and a M.A. in Theology and the Arts from Fuller Theological Seminary. After four years of nonprofit work, Jeremy recently started the production company, Compeller, focusing on documentaries that tell stories from the heart and seek to reconnect us to each other and the earth, while inspiring real change in society. Dive! is Jeremy’s first film. When he isn’t dumpster diving, Jeremy can be found in Highland Park, CA with his wife, Nuf, and three children, Finn, Scout, and Pearl.
