ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Devour! The Food Film Fest is an international festival celebrating cinema, food and wine culture that takes place in the culinary epicenter of the province–Wolfville, Nova Scotia–with the fourth edition slated for November 12-16, 2014. A collision of film and food, where the results are seen on the screen, in the dining room, in intellectual discourse, and in the ground as food. We explore, the future of food, the future of film and digital media, and bring industry insiders from all walks of life to discuss the impact of food on film and film on food

In addition to the planned 30 screenings of food films from around the world, the festival will also host receptions, farmer’s market events, panels, wine tours, tastings & chef demos, producer visits and special dinners celebrating the very best of local and international food and wine.
