Food Film Festival

Amsterdam | Netherlands | 03/22/2013

Goal of the Event
The growing interest among filmmakers in issues surrounding the modern food system and agri-food cultures is represented in Amsterdam at the third edition of the Food Film Festival

Brief description

The program includes three world premiers, a European premiere and fourteen Dutch premieres. At its heart is a program of shorts, including the Dutch animation Super (by Johan Klungel, 2012) and Meatwork (Madeleine Parry, 2012) from Australia. The festival opens with the Dutch premiere of Canned Dreams (Katja Gauriloff, Finland, 2011) about the faces behind typical supermarket products.

But film enthusiasts won’t be just sitting in the audience. The Food Film Festival includes many debates and side-events.

For the second year, the festival also welcomes chefs, food producers, students, scientist and food activists from all over the world to the Slow Food Youth Conference that started yesterday and continues throughout the festival.

Of course, where there's talk about food, people get hungry! The legendary Food Film Festival restaurant serves sustainable meals under the supervision of young and promising chefs Joris Bijdendijk and Samuel Levie. Outside the main venue, the festival market has expanded this year to include a variety of Food Trucks that add quick, tasty and healthy snacks to the festival menu.

During the Food Film Festival, Carlo Petrini, founder and president of the Slow Food Movement, discussed important food issues and tried to give answers to some of audience's questions. The dinner was prepared by festival chef Joris Bijdendijk.

Number of partecipants: 300

Organised by: Youth Food Movement Netherlands, members of the Slow Food Youth Network
