Flatirons Food Film Festival on the Fringe
Saturday, August 25, 2018
Pine Street Church, 1237 Pine Street, Boulder
The Flatirons Food Film Festival is participating in the Boulder International Fringe Festival with a program of short documentaries by the James Beard Award-winning filmmakers The Perennial Plate.
The program will include the A Summer in Colorado series, which consists of 10 films with unique stories of Colorado’s food sustainability, culture, history and creativity. The films take place at diverse locations throughout the Centennial State and include conversations with:
- A former vegetarian cattle rancher in Del Norte
- A forager in Durango who harvests wild plants for her CSA (Community Supported Abundance)
- A pie maker in Cortez who co-founded the Cortez farmers market in 1973
- A farmer in Jaroso for whom family time and good food is more important than material goods
For the Boulder Fringe Festival program, the Festival is screening all films in the series together along with a recent Perennial Plate film about immigrants to the United States, America: You Are My Sunshine. Part of The Perennial Plate’s Immigrant Family Dinner project, this documentary focuses on a Somali refugee family. The filmmakers rushed its release after the Supreme Court decision to uphold the administration’s travel ban on people from predominantly Muslim countries.
In addition, the 2018 Flatirons Food Film Festival preview film will screen, giving a sneak peek of our October 11-14 Festival.
