Feast on Reel Food

October 21-25, 2015

The Flatirons Food Film Festival is an annual multi-day feast celebrating exceptional culinary cinema from various nations. The events take place in Boulder, Colorado, a city known as the epicenter of the natural foods industry and focus of the American craft brewing renaissance. The festival (which includes film showings, discussions and food and beverage events) is part of the International Film Series at the University of Colorado at Boulder. All films screen on the CU-Boulder campus.

The third annual Flatirons Food Film Festival will take place Oct. 19-25. Eight film programs will cover many cuisines (sushi, Thai, Jewish deli, etc.), food-related topics (school food reform, soil health, permaculture), and speakers, including fermentation legend Sandor Katz, chef Andy Ricker of the Pok Pok restaurants, and school food reform advocate chef Ann Cooper. The festival will also include film-related events. For schedule information: www.flatironsfoodfilmfest.org. For tickets: http://tinyurl.com/FFFF15
