The highly-anticipated Sacramento Food Film Festival is back for its fifth year serving up delicious food and films that are sure to wow even the most adventurous foodie! This year’s line-up boasts award-winning documentaries, short films, a bourbon event (yes, please!) and over 20 of the region’s best chefs! Whether you are a die-hard food film festival attendee or you’ve never heard of it, here’s an inside scoop into the five things you should know about this year’s festival.
Enjoy what you see on screen!
Over 20 local chefs and restaurants, including Kru Contemporary Japanese Cuisine, Localis, and Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, will join us for this year’s festival. During each event, you’ll experience a tasty bite inspired by the selected film. For example, if a short film is about Peruvian food and culture, you’ll taste food that will transport you to Peru with just one bite!
Be a VIPea!
Want the best seats in the house? Snag a VIPea ticket to the Premiere Party on April 1 or at Bourbon & Bites on April 8! VIPea treatment includes reserved seating and in-seat wait service (exclusive free bites, and drinks for purchase)! Isn’t that radish?
Become a Food Adventurer!
At Food Literacy Center, we believe food should be fun! We take this approach with the Sacramento Food Film Festival and create awesome food experiences for all. At this year’s festival, you’ll see award-winning films about food, enjoy panel discussions about our food system, and try foods that you’ve never heard of or tasted. We dare you to be a food adventurer just like the kids we teach in food literacy class.
It’s a party!
New this year, we are adding after-parties! For the Premiere on Saturday, April 1, and Bourbon and Bites on Saturday, April 8, we are extending the fennel fun for 1 hour! Mix and mingle with other guests, chefs, and enjoy a music, a photo booth, and beer, wine and bourbon cocktails, available for purchase.
Support a great cause!
You can have fun while supporting a grapefruit great cause! Food Literacy Center’s mission is to inspire kids to eat their vegetables. We teach low-income elementary children cooking and nutrition to improve our health, environment, and economy. Funds from these events will help Food Literacy Center provide low-income students in Sacramento with freefood literacy education.
