Farm Dinner Benefit at Black Cat Farm a Smashing Success!
Without you, there would be no Flatirons Food Film Festival, nor would the Black Cat Farm Dinner have been such a resounding success!
Foodies from all over attended the first ever Farm-To-Table dinner hosted by Black Cat Farm, and we cannot thank you enough for your support!
A special thanks to our sponsors, and especially to Deborah Madison, James Beard Award-winning author of vegetarian cookbook classics like The Greens Cookbook and The Savory Way and her new cookbook, In My Kitchen: A Collection of New and Favorite Vegetarian Recipes.We got a behind the scenes, sneak peak tour of the farm with Black Cat chef and farmer extraordinaire Eric Skokan and enjoyed his culinary expertise during a three-course meal.
Flatirons Food Film Festival at Slow Food Nations
Our Slow Food Nations Film Cafe was a fabulous experience!
We are proud and grateful that we were able to be part of the magical Slow Food Nations, the new food festival that took place from July 14-16 in downtown Denver. Slow Food Nations included everything from workshops to tastings to demos with some of the best people in the food world. When we were able to take time away from the Slow Food Nations Cafe, we learned so much and had a great time. We ran the Slow Foods Film Cafe, which screened some of the best short films from previous years of the Flatirons Food Film Festival as well as some excellent ones that will be shown during the 2017 festival that will take place on Sept. 27-Oct. 1 .
The historic Oxford Hotel, which will include the upcoming Urban Farmer restaurant, hosted the Slow Food Nations Film Cafe. They were gracious, helpful, and provided a beautiful and comfortable environment. We are lucky to have partnered with them.
Slow Food Nations participants stopped by to relax, watch some films, and grab a beverage or snack. It was great to meet new people passionate about food and see familiar faces. We hope to see you at our upcoming festival when we offer feature-length films, speakers, and food events related to the films.
We Made it to Year Five!
This year marks the fifth year of the Flatirons Food Film Festival. We are excited to be in our fifth year and plan to celebrate this milestone with a special upcoming festival (Sept. 27-Oct.1).
This year, we will kick off the festival at the Rayback Collective, continue at the Canyon Theater of the Boulder Public Library, and finish strong at Muenzinger Auditorium on the CU-Boulder campus.
Our nine feature-length festival films include documentaries on several trail blazers in food culture and a mini-series on classic food films. Check back in July for our complete film schedule.
