January 28 - February 5, 2021

Food, Glorious Food!

The tastiness of the Flatirons Food Film Festival lies not only in its compelling films about food but how it is a multi-sensory experience that can include food. While films activate sight and sound, and events set us into motion, the taste and aroma of food and drink related to the films complete the immersion.
