ABOUT THE SACRAMENTO FOOD FILM FESTIVAL
The Sacramento Food Film Festival is a celebration of food, films and fun! Created in 2012, the Sacramento Food Film Festival was founded on the notion to educate the public about the current food system and inspire positive change. Most films surrounding food issues are often not featured in traditional theaters. Thus, the festival strives to bring the community’s attention to these films and issues whilst pairing them with food, fun and activism.
In 2017, with 90 volunteers and 94 partners, the Sacramento Food Film Festival had 634 attendees and raised $42,947 (net). The funds of the event help Food Literacy Center reach more low-income kids with cooking and nutrition classes.
