Thanks for the Wonderful Memories

Our 2016 Flatirons Food Film Festival was a festival that spoke to the power and beauty of film, food and the sustenance and joy it brings, and the fellowship of people who appreciate the magic that happens when you bring films and food together. Our fourth festival gifted us with five days of celebrating and being grateful for our existence in a very specific way.

To our patrons, sponsors, donors, venues, board members, speakers, volunteers, and those of you who supported and attended our fourth festival, thank you so much. A festival of any kind is a collective enterprise. We appreciate your contribution and support.


The themes of this festival touched on:

  • Gustatory and beverage enjoyment
  • Chefs and the other people who provide the building blocks of nourishment
  • Connecting the next generation with the joy of food
  • Restaurant criticism
  • Food activism


  • Appearance of Pulitzer Prize award-winning restaurant critic Jonathan Gold
  • Celebration of Munchies (the food brand of Vice Media) short films at eTown Hall
  • New children’s program of short food films with goats from the Mountain Flower Goat Dairy
  • Award-winning new documentary about Chef Massimo Bottura’s Milan soup kitchen straight from its US premiere

In the end, food leads back to relationships—between family members, co-workers, chefs and customers, ourselves in the context of a greater society and the environment.
