This month, TIFF Bell Lightbox kicks off it’s popular (and oft sold out) Food on Film subscription series. Loose yourself in 6 mouthwatering films and after each film discuss the intersections of cinema, culture and gastronomy with special guests. The event is hosted by Annabelle Waugh, Canadian Living Magazine’s Food Director.
I recommend the film Sideways on Wednesday, April 24 with special speaker Aldo Sohm.
Aldo Sohm, chef sommelier at La Bernardin, takes us into the world of wine appreciation through a discussion of Alexander Payne’s hit comedy-drama about a pair of middle-aged oenophiles who seek solace from romantic distress in the vineyards of California’s Napa Valley.
Not into food? How about brain food? Books on Film also returns this month. A selection of films adapted from books will be screened and discussed afterwards with a selection of film makers, authors and experts. This series is hosted by Eleanor Wachtel from CBC’s Writers and Company.
I recommend Midnight’s Children on Monday, June 24th with the filmmaker himself, Deepa Mehta!
Celebrated Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta describes the process of collaborating with Salman Rushdie on the screen adaptation of his Booker Prize–winning classic Midnight’s Children.
Go and subscribe to the series of your choice! It’s a nice way to get out and experience a night of film once a month!
