Tickets for the Food Film Festival now on sale

 

This year’s Food Film Festival, which will take place from April 10-14, will take food lovers on journeys to the edge of the world in Greenland, Spain’s famous wine region, Canada’s new seaweed farms, Italy’s prisons, and many other places. The opening film pays homage to the legendary Michelin-starred Danish restaurant Noma, which will soon close its doors in its current form. Tickets for the festival are now on sale.

“Noma and its founders René Redzepi and Claus Meyer have been invaluable pioneers in Nordic cuisine, and due to the imminent closure of the restaurant in its current form, we will pay homage to their decades of activity and contribution with the opening session of the Food Film Festival,” commented Taivi Koitla, the co-founder of the festival.

A total of seven documentaries covering inspiring stories from the world of food will be screened as part of the Food Film Festival, offering something for food lovers to industry experts. “Among other things, you can experience the move of the truly special restaurant Koks to Greenland in the movie “Restaurant on the edge of the world”, watch the internal workings of the world’s first prison restaurant in the movie “Welcome to Prison” and go on a journey through Ukraine in search of an authentic recipe for their national dish, in the movie “Borš. The secret ingredient,” added Helen Saluveer, the co-founder of the festival.

The Food Film Festival, which is a unique format in the Nordic and Baltic countries, first took place back in 2019. This year’s festival will take place from April 10 to 14 in Sõprus cinema in Tallinn. A special screening will also take place at Elektriteater in Tartu. All of the films will be screened with English subtitles.

The full programme can be found on the official Food Film Festival website. Tickets for the films are also available on the same site.
