Foodies and Film Fans Unite!

Devour! The Food Film Fest is an international festival celebrating cinema, food and wine culture. The five-day festival takes place in the culinary epicentre of Nova Scotia – the town of Wolfville, Kings County. The festival is an experiential celebration of food on film, the culture of food and the dramatic impact it has on our day-to-day lives. The sixth edition of Devour! The Food Film Fest is slated for November 2-6, 2016.

This year's fesitval follows a Women in Gastronomy theme! On November 5, Devour! will screen the world premiere of Vérane Frédiani’s highly-anticipated feature, The Goddesses of Food. Featuring stories from some of the greats like Barbara Lynch and Dominique Crenn, the film explores the unique world of women and cuisine, from the trials to the triumphs. Spotlight Gala dinner will be a clash of the culinary titans, with six legendary female chefs working together to create a decadent dinner inspired by the film. Three visiting chefs, Boston’s Barbara Lynch (No 9 Park), Los Angeles’ Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill) and Toronto’s Christine Flynn (Chef Jacques La Merde), will join three local chefs, The Canteen’s Renée Lavallée, The Prince George’s Bee Choo Char and The Old Apothecary’s Laura MacLeod to create the ultimate feast for the senses. Long-time festival partner, Bishop’s Cellar, will pair each course with a selection from all-female winemakers.

Don't miss out on these great features plus so much more!
