In its fourth year and still growing, the Sacramento Food Film Festival is back this spring to bring good movies and good grub to hungry Sacramento audiences. This year’s lineup of food-centric movie events kicks off with a special evening at Goldfield Trading Post celebrating the festival’s winning short films. Executive Chef Michael Thiemann of Mother and Empress Tavern, Executive Chef Jay Veregge of Ten22, and James Beard Foundation Award-winning Chef Hank Shaw will be on-site serving up special bites for all the foodies in attendance. Young students from the Food Literacy Center’s after-school program will be the servers for the evening, and will be happy to chat with guests about their food knowledge (these kids know their stuff). To round out the evening, guests can take home a goodie bag brimming with top-notch foodie swag, including Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters coffee beans, Preservation & Co.’s award-winning Blood Mary mix, and a bottle of Ramos Olive Oil. And if you’re feeling like a foodie baller, you can pay a bit more for a VIP ticket, which grants you access to extra exclusive bites and the Champagne Room.
Put on by the Food Literacy Center and America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, the Sacramento Food Film Festival seeks to bring educational movies to the local community in order to foster discussion around food literacy and our food systems.
