What is the Toronto Food Film Fest all about?
The Toronto Food Film Fest is truly a celebration of independent film making, food and culture!
We have an amazing line up of films, workshops, talks and curated snacks.
What is a Food Film Fest?
Great question! Our food and film festival is focused on films about food. So much of our cultural identity is embedded in what we eat. Think about your childhood memories, you can probably remember what your grandma’s house smelled like when she was cooking on a Sunday afternoon, or what you ate on your first date with the person who is now your spouse. When you travel, trying the local cuisine is a highlight! We want to celebrate all of these story-telling moments, good or bad, that surround food.

The Toronto Food Film Fest would like to acknowledge the land on which we gather is located on the treaty territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat nations.
We recognize that this territory is covered by the Dish with One Spoon treaty, an agreement between the Anishinaabeg, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee Confederacy to share the territory and protect the land.
We encourage you to reflect on the history of the land that you are on and your relationship to that land.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto, or Tkaronto, is the home to many Indigenous people all over Turtle Island.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to work, live, and learn on this land.
