Sacramento Food Film Festival
April 11-21, 2018

Back to Calendar

Created in 2012, the Sacramento Food Film Festival was born from the idea that we must educate the public about our food system, and work collaboratively to create positive change. We seek to bring educational films to our region that are otherwise ignored by traditional theaters – and to create a community dialog to improve food literacy and invoke action to improve our food system.
