Have you ever attended a food film and found yourself wanting to go out for a bite or drink after the movie? This is a group for Flatirons Food Film Festival patrons who want eat, drink, and talk about the movie after the lights go back on.
Founded in 2012, the Flatirons Food Film Festival ( http://www.flatironsfoodfilmfest.org ) is an annual extended weekend film festival that is devoted to food culture and the films that reflect it. Its films are diverse with US and international documentaries and fictional films. The subject matter is also wide-ranging with films that resonate with foodies to politically-oriented documentaries and everything in between. The common thread is food.
A expert speaker, who introduces each film, and a short film precede every feature-length film. There are also panel discussions, film-related culinary events, visiting speakers, and after parties and other opportunities for socializing. Visiting speakers have included the fermented food expert Sandor Katz, Chef Andy Ricker of the Portland and New York City Pok Pok restaurants, and Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold of the LA Times as well as film directors.
The 2017 Flatirons Food Film will take place Sept. 27-Oct. 1st (Wed. through Sun.).
