Friday August 21st 6:30 p.m.

A movie for the foodie in all of us, Trattoria is a culinary comedy/drama about Chef Sal Sartini (played by Tony Denison of The Closer television series), who is preparing to open a new restaurant in the Bay Area. After he suffers a health crisis, his challenge is to repair the relationships in his life, including that with his adult estranged son, and open the restaurant. Trattoria was inspired by real chefs and the screenwriters’ real-life experiences in the restaurant business.


Jason Wolos,  Trattoria director, will introduce the film and participate in the post-film discussion and Q&A.

Dawn Rich, Trattoria executive producer, will participate in the post-film discussion and Q&A.

Chef Jensen Cummings, creator and host of Best Served Podcast, will pose questions during the post-film discussion.


If a restaurant offers its own delivery service, we suggest that you select it over third-party services or pick up your meal yourself. That option helps restaurants financially. Featured dinners and ordering/pickup information is available on the EventBrite ticketing page for this event.

To be announced soon.

Recipes for Home Cooks

You can find spices for recipes from our sponsor Savory Spice Shop in Boulder, which is providing curbside pickup from Thursday to Saturday, 10am-6pm by phone, email, or online order.

How Dinner and a Movie works

Each Dinner and a Movie event will consist of:

  • A featured food film available to stream online
  • Specific recommended meals related to the film that viewers can order, pick up or have delivered, and eat while watching the movie
  • For home cooks: Suggested Savory Spice Shop recipes for dishes to be made and paired with the film
  • Speakers for a film introduction and post-film discussion via Zoom
  • A $10 viewing fee

We’ll stream a movie every Friday, including some past favorites from previous festivals. The EventBrite event description will contain all event details, including featured restaurant and recipe information. As new information comes in, such as new restaurants or dinner details, we will add it to the EventBrite and Festival Facebook pages.

Approximately one hour before the event, all participants will receive an email with access information for the streaming film as well as for the live film introduction and post-film discussion and Q&A on Zoom. Participants will start watching, and eating together, at 6:30 p.m. (MST). Those who can’t join the live presentation can still access the film and recorded post-film discussion until 12 p.m. (MST)  the next Sunday.
