2019 Flatirons Food Film Festival

Thank you all for another amazing year of food, film, and fun. We hope you had a chance to join us on our four days of food culture nirvana. If not, next year! The Flatirons Food Film Festival rides again for its 7th year, and we keep growing to offer more experiences and ways to learn about food. This year, we added a free lecture series and unique exhibitions of local art inspired by our films.

Check out contemporary Harare in Zimbabwe while watching our African romantic comedy, Cook Off. Visit our Pollinators Fair. Attend a lecture about the #MeToo movement in the restaurant industry. Celebrate the end of the Festival at our The Biggest Little Farm dinner at Bramble and Hare with Eric and Jill Skokan. Come early to our Opening Night: The Migrant Kitchen showing or Tazzeka and view art inspired by the films.
