Join Us for a Showing of the Movie Silo

We are inviting you, our members, and others in our communities to join us for a special virtual screening of SILO, the first ever feature film about a grain entrapment. SILO isn’t available online, or on DVD, and this event is one-of-a-kind. We hope that you will join us on August 20,2020 at 7:00 PM for a CFS sponsored virtual showing of this movie.

Inspired by true events, SILO follows a harrowing day in an American farm town. Disaster strikes when teenager Cody Rose is entrapped in a 50-foot-tall grain bin. When the corn turns to quicksand, family, neighbors and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue Cody from drowning in the crop that has sustained their community for generations. You can watch the SILO  trailer - click here.

SILO has been featured in Progressive Farmer, FarmWeek Now, Sharkfarmer and many more newspapers, magazines, radio shows and podcasts. American AG Network says “The film speaks directly to our core audience and does a great job at raising awareness of this very real and very dangerous threat posed to farmers.” World-Grain says, “Throughout the farming community it’s often hard to talk about grain entrapment because so many people have been hurt or killed... the movie will be something that people can really learn from.” It’s going to be a great event, and We hope you will join us! Following the screening, there will be a guided discussion about the film and the themes relevant to our everyday lives.

You must RSVP to receive an emailed password to watch this film, give Stephanie Peterson a call or text your name and email address to 507-475-3328 or email your name, phone number and email address to speterson@cfscoop.com to sign up. Login information will be emailed 15 minutes prior to show time.
