Food & Farm Film Festival: 18 reasons to spend $15
Not entirely 18 reasons, but we can thank 18 reasons for next month’s Food & Farm Film Festival. It’s the time of year where our eyes are delighted to gaze upon the pops of color finally revealing themselves at the farmer’s markets and along outdoor trails. It’s spring. Which is a perfect time to hold any type of festival that shows love for nature’s bounty.
The darlings of Bi-Rite and Roxie are holding their second annual Food & Farm Film Festival at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco’s Mission District. Three days of food-centric films and tastings pillar this event that promises to show an 88-minute film, Le Quattro Volte, “about life in the remote mountain town of Caulonia, in southern Italy.”
Nine out of the thirteen individual events taking place during the festival are priced at $15. Some include food in that price and some include a brunch with the Mission District’s own 18 reasons, where you can spend a Saturday afternoon eating goat cheese whilst mingling with goats. And possibily listen to certain someones squeal with delight as they mingle with said goats. Not a bad deal for self-proclaimed foodies to delve into the deeper meanings of the products they love to consume and perhaps even walk away with a promotional title of gastronome.
