Film Feast 2020 – A Food and Film Fusion
Last year Film Feast took place at 16 venues across Suffolk and we also held our first event in London. The Riverside will once again be hosting the main part of the festival over the weekend of 3rd and 4th October with the full programme due to be announced at a special event in August.
Riverside Film Feast events happening during the year can be found here while all other Suffolk based events happening around the county can be found on the Film Feast website – www.filmfeast.co.uk.
Film Feast is all about bringing communities together through a love of film, food and drink while at the same time celebrating the incredible array of local food and drink producers in our region.
We showcase feature films, documentaries and short films from around the world all on the subject of food and drink with each evening ending with a meal replicated from one of the feature films screened earlier in the day. There will also be some very special pop-up screenings around town at local independent cafes and restaurants featuring food associated with the films screened. Wherever possible all the food used will also be sourced locally.
The format is the idea of Suffolk born film consultant and researcher, Neil McGlone, and our patrons are British film director, Mike Leigh, TV personality and restaurateur, Ruth Watson, and Suffolk’s farmer and TV personality, Jimmy Doherty.
