Sometimes an event catches our eye and we just can’t stop telling people. This is one of those events. Coupling together our favorite thing–food, with our second favorite thing–films, this festival is going to be both fun and educational. The festival features domestic and foreign documentaries, a panel discussion with filmmakers, foodies and academics, as well as prizes provided by Fresh Restaurant, MamaEarth Organics, Farmhouse Tavern, The Big Carrot, Free Times Cafe, Front Door Organics, and more!
So when is this intriguing endeavor? Friday, March 1st, 2013. It’s being held at the Nat Taylor Cinema (North Ross 102 at York University) between 9:00am to 4:30pm–with a panel discussion at 1:30pm.
The food-focused film roster looks amazing–check out the line-up below:
