The Food Film Festival finds a new home in Amsterdam's Westergasfabriek to present the best in films focusing on food and its value in society.
Food Film Festival
Since 2011, the Food Film Festival has introduced audiences to a very special sub-genre of film: that which brings attention to our conceptions and notions regarding food and its production.
Established by the Youth Food Movement (YFM), the festival was started as a way to put more attention on important issues surrounding contemporary food production processes.
In addition to screenings, the Food Film Festival hosts a variety of tastings, demonstrations, debates, art exhibitions and musical performances.
The festival has grown to be a popular event, attracting over 8.000 visitors in 2013 that included a diverse public along with cooks, policy makers and concerned consumers.
