Relaunched food-themed film festival in Nova Scotia, to run Nov 13-17.
Devour! The Food Film Fest will kick off Nov 13 in Wolfville, Nova Scotia with a bounty of food prepared by 11 chefs and the festival’s opening film, The Fruit Hunters from Canadian director Yung Chang.
The five-day programme includes 70 films from 20 countries as well as events and food featuring some of Canada’s top chefs. Other films in the programme will include The Last Shepherd, Mussels in Love, More than Honey and At Any Price.
“We’re so happy we can deliver both on screen and on your plate. The festival will be a most decadent meal from start to finish,” said Lia Rinaldo, Managing Director of Devour! “The enthusiasm for the festival has been humbling. We look forward to hosting all of our special guests from the food and film industry as well as festival participants in beautiful Wolfville.”
