The 6th annual Flatirons Food Film Festival opens with a night of craft beer and ends with a twisted tale of pastry and deep subterfuge. Between opening and closing nights, learn about Cuba’s food traditions, local food nonprofits, Anthony Bourdain from his friends, the struggle of opening a women run food truck in a refugee camp, passing on family traditions, how to nurture young farmers, and how to move away from factory farming.
This year, there will be a special homage to Anthony Bourdain:
Saturday, October 13, 6:00 to 10:00pm
– 6:oo pm to 7:00 pm, Street Food Reception
– 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Babette’s Feast screening
– 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm Laurie Woolever and Todd Liebler interview
Our Homage to Anthony Bourdain will start with a street food reception. Anthony Bourdain frequently enjoyed street food on his television shows, so serving street food is another way to celebrate his life. It will continue with a screening of Babette’s Feast, the 1987 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film that was one of Anthony Bourdain’s favorite food films. Bourdain’s taped introduction to the film for TCM’s Spotlight: Food in the Movies will precede the screening.
After the film, Sara Brito, Co-Founder of the Good Food Media Network ™, will interview guest speakers Laurie Woolever and Todd Liebler and moderate the Q&A that will follow. Laurie Woolever is a writer and editor who worked closely with Anthony Bourdain and is writing an authorized biography of him. Todd Liebler is an Emmy Award-winning cinematographer who spent the last 13 years working with Anthony Bourdain on No Reservation and Parts Unknown.
