Food Art Film Festival

VAN EYCK FOOD ART FILM FESTIVAL

5 – 8 September 2018

*Please note that there is limited availability for attending the full programme including the four course dinner and workshops! Please register and book for the festival using this link.

During the 4-day Food Art Film Festival the garden of the Van Eyck will be transformed into an open-air art-house cinema, artist-run organic restaurant, a site for debate on Food Futures, workshops and Artist’ Talks. Themes include 'Tasting the Anthropocene', 'Obsession and the senses', 'Livestock vs wild animal' and 'Human-non-human dependencies.'

Join a workshop on bee-hive design, an experimental dinner made to match the re-release of the Japanese film classic Tampopo and learn how to ferment and brew alongside a full programme of art films and lip-smackingly good food from local farmers and producers. The Food Art Film Festival marks the official opening of the Van Eyck’s Food Lab; a residency programme for an artist/chef.
