Devour! The Food Film Fest is the world’s largest film festival dedicated to all things culinary. The five-day festival takes place in the culinary epicentre of Nova Scotia – the town of Wolfville, Kings County. With 30+ chefs, 20+ workshops, 15+ tasting tours, more than a dozen dinners, parties and events and over 85 new food and wine films from around the work, Devour! is an experiential celebration of food on film, the culture of food and the dramatic impact it has on our day-to-day lives. No wonder it’s so closely related to Slow Food!
The sixth edition of Devour! The Food Film Fest is slated for November 2-6, 2016. This year, November 3rd will be dedicated to Slow Food and many activities will be happening for the occasion including a happy hour with the Founding Partner, Slow Food Nova Scotia: come enjoy some fresh Nova Scotia oysters courtesy of our partners at Sober Island Oysters and mingle with an interesting crew night after night!

Also to be noted, the presentation of the Angry Inuk Movie with Panel Discussion to Follow: the movie tells the “complex story of the commercial seal hunt in the Canadian Arctic, and how it affects economies, traditions, ethics, and even survival.” (link: http://devourfest.com/program/angry-inuk-wthe-forge-panel-discussion-to-follow/)
