Upcoming 8th Flatirons Food Film Festival
The 8th Flatirons Food Film Festival will make you hungry from January 28-February 5, 2021. (The ninth Festival will take place in Fall 2021.)
As a virtual Festival that viewers can attend while safe and warm at home, the festival intends to brighten the dreariness of winter with 10 feature films, three short films programs, discussions, culinary events, and more. This virtual festival will highlight indigenous and underrepresented food cultures with films about:
- Mayan coffee growers
- Underprivileged aspiring Bolivian chefs
- Native Americans reclaiming their culinary heritage
- Cacao growers in the Peruvian Amazon
- Black American foodways
Other topics include Chef Evan Funke, a master of handmade pasta; a high-tech company growing meat from meat cells; Francois Vatel, master chef during the time of King Louis XIV; and an Australian dynamo who pivoted from high-powered corporate event planning to founding and running a globally influential food waste nonprofit organization.
In addition to its speakers and culinary events, this year’s Festival will continue last year’s new features: a lecture series, a visual art collaboration, and multiple films and events showing concurrently. Using the Eventive Virtual film platform, viewers can tune into and participate in live events or watch the recorded versions later at their leisure over multiple days. With this new functionality, extending the Festival to an unprecedented eight days will give viewers a chance to watch more of what interests them.
