Q: What is a Food Film Festival?
A: Great question! Our Food 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.
