As part of the annual Feast: Food and Film Festival, participants are going to be given a little taste of what they see on screen.

As part of the four-day event, participants are provided with a multi-sensory experience where they are completed immersed in films that they wouldn’t normally have the chance to see.

For example, during the screening of Barolo Boys: the Story of Revolution, a the story of Barolo wine and how it exploded as a world phenomenon at the Vic Theatre, the dinner menu includes a tasting of Barolo wine with a sommelier presentation, Italian cheese and a cheese board.

“It’s a great way to look at food and film from a new perspective,” said Kathy Kay, festival director. “We have themed events for every taste — from champagne to steak — complete with films you wouldn’t get to see otherwise.”

Other experiences include the film Steak (R)evolution paired with a steak and gin martini, a French film titled A Year in Champagne alongside three samples of champagne, and Finding Gaston, about a Peruvian chef, paired with a De Vine Vineyards wine tasting and Peruvian cuisine.

There are eight events between May 28-31 at various locations around town. This year the festival expanded to include restaurants and distilleries from Sidney as well.
