Food event: Food film fest

Wolfville Nova Scotia is holding a film fest with a food theme this weekend. I know a lot of you (including myself) might not be able to attend this but i couldn’t resist posting about it. If you live in the area and are able to attend please add comments and let me know how it went. I’ll enjoy being envious. I wish my city was holding one; this is exactly what I’d like to do this weekend. Guess I’ll have to settle for a Sunday afternoon movie fest at home. So I’d love it if you share your favourite food movie or movies.  Post a comment below. Here’s the link for the festival and some more information that I was given about it. Food Nova Scotia presents SLOW MOTION, a new, three-day film festival that’s all about food ‘ Fun, films, and food for all ages at the Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Eleven screenings include such favourites as Babette’s Feast and Ratatouille, full-length documentaries, and an exciting hour of international short films. Of particular local interest are the feature Nova Scotia documentary Animals and Slow Food Nova Scotia’s own The Edible Schoolyard. The multi-award-winning documentary FOOD, Inc. has its local premiere screening at Slow Motion. Complementary events include a friendly California and Nova Scotia wine tasting, a gala opening party, the Wolfville Farmers’ Market Amazing Food Race, a harvest barn dinner with chefs Michael Howell, Craig Flinn and Peter Jackson preparing a heritage pork dinner, and a panel discussion on the economics and ethics of eating seafood in the modern world with respected panelists from BC to Halifax.
