Sacramento Food Film Festival
April 10-17, 2019

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 dialogue to improve food literacy and invoke action to improve our food system.

The Sacramento Food Film Festival celebrates food and drink paired with films about our food system. At the final film of 2019, we feature a documentary about the growing problem of childhood obesity – The Kids Menu. Filmmaker Joe Cross meets with experts, parents, teachers and kids, coming to the realization that childhood obesity isn’t the real issue, but rather a symptom of a bigger problem.

Location: 24th Street Theatre at Sierra 2 Center, 2791 24th St, Sacramento, CA 95818

Film: A Fine Line

The Sacramento Food Film Festival celebrates food and drink paired with films about our food system. This year’s premier event focuses on women in the industry featuring the film A Fine Line by Joanna James.

We’ll hear perspectives and experiences from world-renowned chefs in the film, feature all women chefs preparing bites for the guest, and focus on women run/led/owned wineries, breweries, producers and businesses throughout the event.

Film Festival Event
Soufra

Opening Night – Dinner & a Movie
2019 Sacramento Food Film Festival

Location: Lucca Restaurant & Bar, 1615 J St, Sacramento, CA 95814

Film: Soufra

The Sacramento Food Film Festival celebrates food and drink paired with films about our food system. Opening night includes a thoughtfully crafted multi-course meal prepared by Chef Ian McBride and an intimate private dining experience while you watch the film Soufra.

Soufra follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burl El Barajneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam and a diverse team of fellow refugee women as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand its reach outside the camp with a food truck business. Together, they heal the wounds of war through the unifying power of food while taking their future into their own hands. Watch the trailer
