Stand back TIFF, there’s a new film festival in town! And this one involves delicious eats.
The Eatable Film Festival, is a 3 night food film festival that sees
some of Toronto’s hottest chefs creating food and drinks inspired by and to be served at the screenings of each food-obsessed film! Each night features its own totally immersive screening event with its own delicious theme, tone, and taste.
Here are the 3 films that will be playing, and their delicious pairings.
Sherry and the Mystery of Palo Cortado: Sun., Oct. 4, Eatable collaborates with Chef Grant Van Gameren (Bar Isabel and Bar Raval) on the Canadian premiere at The Royal Cinema of Sherry and the Mystery of Palo Cortado, a journey through Jerez de la Frontera, the home of Spain’s great sherry houses, and the story of a comeback. Audiences will enjoy a sherry cocktail, three types of pintxos, and a sherry tasting by Bar Raval during the screening. An optional five-course sherry pairing dinner will follow both screenings at Bar Isabel. (Screening only $50/ticket; screening and dinner $200/per person; two screenings – 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at The Royal Cinema, 608 College St.)
F***ing Perfect Mon., Oct. 5, the Toronto premiere of Sergio Herman, F***ing Perfect features chef Brandon Olsen’s take on the ‘perfect’ bite, the ‘perfect’ cocktail, and the ‘perfect’ cinema snacks. Everyone is shocked when 40-year- old chef Sergio Herman closes his three Michelin star restaurant. The film is a riveting story of perfection, ambition, and sacrifice.

For this rare screening of Japanese cult food classic Tampopo, Eatable collaborates with Leemo Han (Oddseoul and Hanmoto) to create a completely immersive eating-watching experience.
